Re: Cruising with livestock -- any anchoring issues?

Be sure to mute the cow bell at the evening milking. Cows are not known for a sense of timing and they can't count eight bells very well. Don't worry ,she 'll let you know when it's time for the morning milking.

You should have seen the ad that was right above your post, for t-shirts, with some girl bent over with her udders hanging out...the cows coming home LOL

Re: Cruising with livestock -- any anchoring issues?

In the days of yore; long before there were freezers and A/C. Carrying livestock was the only means of having fresh meat. But those ships had pens built for easy handling the bullocks, pigs and chickens. Plus they had to have stowage for the feed also. Run out of feed and guest whose pet cow ends up in the stew pot.

If your bovine crew has free range privileges on deck you will have to supply the four necessary thump mats. They are secured with ,,,wait for it... cloven hitches.

Re: Cruising with livestock -- any anchoring issues?

As a pesco-vegan just wanted to say how sad I am for the cows having their young ones taken away, all so some humans could have milk long after they themselves have been weaned.

A much easier alternative is simply to use vegan milk, all you need is a blender, water, and some kind of nut, like almond, coconut or your choice. Coconut cream (coco milk concentrated), unlike powdered milk tastes great and is good for you.

There you go Bene - forget the livestock - on your barge have a fresh water lake, an almond plantation and some cocunut trees. No more anchoring issues...

Boston Common is actually a common pasture, so while you are in Boston you should be able to walk Bessie over to the Common for some fresh grass.

How about a pesco vegan nut?


Cows are not people, and trust me having owned and raised a few they do not mind at all if I take the milk. You are free to drink nut milk if you like, but don't you feel sorry for the trees the nuts came from? I mean you are EATING the future of the forest.

No way, some Sailnetter will anchor his boat in my lake!

Not sure Coconuts will grow here next to all these big buildings.

And that kind of farm is what drove me to getting a livestock barge in the first place.

I think coconuts go good with shrimp, but I think maybe they would be a hazard to grow on the boat, those things start falling on your deck or your head and it is going to hurt.
