Fattening Cows

August 26, 2012 in Daily Bulletin

Ricardo Lopez reports on a farmer that found an innovative strategy to keep his farm profitable:

  • America’s recent drought has destroyed a lot of corn crop, causing prices to rise.
  • Corn is an important part of the diet of a cow. Farmers have struggled to fatten up their cows with corn prices so high.
  • One farmer dealt with this problem by feeding his cows candy – knowing that they would quickly gain weight because of it.
