Looks like a good example of how socialism works.

It'll function just fine for everybody but the 6234 calf.

IMHO that is a very dishonest cow who reflects very badly on the character of her owner. That sort of dishonest behavior makes it impossible for me to take widemouth and levitation measurements, not to mention nursing ratio which is the sole basis for my replacement selections.

What would be more profitable, a commercial herd where every cow allowed that, or a commercial herd where zero cows allowed that? In the hypothetical world maybe we don't want them to do that, but in the real world I bet it saves a few calves.

TD, I always liked girls like that.

Must be one of the Ohio multi-uddered type of cow. I'd hate to see what she would eat in a day nursing 6 to 10 calves!

Kent, are you going dual-purpose? Do you milk the other half of the herd?

Kent, There's a regis-turd herd here in my area where that cow would have 5 other cows sucking her and their calves starving.
