If the NY Times can do it, so can I.
A close reader wrote to tell me I got my cows all wrong in the "We're Here Because We're Here, etc." post. But this is Annie's World, and evidently in Annie's World, Herefords are dairy cattle. Unfortunately anyone in the real world (of farming, that is) knows they are for eating. She thought perhaps I'd seen Holsteins, which are black and white. I think she's right.
So...for all you farmers out there, I stand corrected.
And thanks, Louise, for setting this city girl straight.

Well it doesn't matter which one is for milking or whatever where still eating it and a cow is still a cow. Lol

That was so funny about the cows. I am a farm girl so I know the difference but it is an easy mistake to make. You should see the odd things people think about poultry growing.

LOL! Even though I grew up in a small rural town, it wasn't a farm and I wouldn't have known the difference.

Guess it's important to some, MN. Especially the cows! Some get eaten... Better not get it wrong!
