Re: Cruising with livestock -- any anchoring issues?

To insure a steady supply of milk and calf one has to consider the annual conjugal visits to Mister Bull; which usually means a shore visit for Beauty. That was my chore when I was 10 to15 yrs old. Actually Beauty knew where and why she was headed so it was more like drag the kid 5 miles to Wheal's farm(down Wheal road,for those of you who know the Sunshine Coast). When she stood with her spine proudly straight it was time for a much more leisurely stroll back up the mountain. More later on harvesting the yearling if anybody needs the advice.

I think it would make a great MOOvie! It would be an instant classic like Capt. Ron. How many cows are you offering him for the rights?!?!

Re: Cruising with livestock -- any anchoring issues?

Cow is a bit general? Holstein, Jersey, Bison...?

Are you focused on pounds of milk production or butter fat content?

Re: Cruising with livestock -- any anchoring issues?

There was a guy I once read about who did the whole cruising with livestock thing, actually more than one since I read Noah's sailing log too. I think that other guy was named Christopher or Cristobal, depending on what language I was reading about him, he actually went cruising with two other captains on three boats, and they anchored somewhere down in the Caribbean with not much trouble other than the normal stuff at the time when they were sailing. I think the names of those boats were something like Nina, Pinta, and Santa Maria, and they seemed to have overcome the anchorage issues. Of course I would not want to go it in the same way they did, I mean no motor, no ventilation fans and I think the boats were a little beamy and the rigging was not what I would prefer, too many crew required to handle the vessel.

I would go for a nice brown swiss, the milk production is good, the fat content is about perfect for making ice cream and butter, and the milk is just great. When she gets old then bossy will have some great steaks and a nice hide to use as a bimini cover, or perhaps a nice warm blanket if you leave the fur on.

It is good that we can poke fun at ourselves, otherwise our egos might become overinflated.

It is good to learn from your mistakes, but much better to learn from the mistakes of others...

You would have to be careful with her, she looks like the kind of girl who might eat your livestock if the mood struck her, not saying she is a fat girl, but she sure is healthy

I would not throw her overboard though.

Heck, she looks healthy enough to give milk daily. That's the kind of livestock I want on my barge.

I'm afraid this thread may continue 'til the cows come home'!
