The weather people say our temperature is now about -3F with a wind chill ten degrees lower. Another day to stay in and stay warm. At least I can be thankful that I don't have to deal with the record low temperature.
I wonder how soon the commercial dairy industry will come out with studies to counter this one. But the results don't really surprise me. I have been reading about the increased incidence of particularly nasty strains of e. coli in feed lot beef. Cows aren't really designed to digest corn effectively. They are supposed to eat grass.
