"As for Butter versus Margarine,

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 9 February 2021 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

. . . I trust cows more than chemists."

- Quote by Joan Gussow

The first thing that came to mind when I saw all these cows laying down was how exhausted they must have been after "churning out the butter.' ;-)

Photo captured in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin on August 19, 2020.

I'm not sure, given all the chemistry that goes into cows to turn them into milk or meat machines, that this holds true. A tranquil bucolic capture though.

Un peu de repos bien mérité, ruminer en permanence donne le droit de se vautrer voluptueusement dans l'herbe grasse.
J'adore !

We don't know how exhausting life must be for cows. Ruminating can be a tiring process.
