I had fun in Microbiology class culturing out what grew on a cow's teats ;) Grow it out on different media/nutrients; do your various Gram stains and other tests....identify the organisms

This is a great topic, but isn't more for a sociologist or an economist? It's not really biologically related in my opinion, but a great topic nonetheless.

I feed mine twice a day when they need hay. I do it partly to get a look at them to make sure everyone is OK. Is there any research to suggest that there is any benefit to feeding once, or twice a day?

The biology angle is related to the government's position that bigger is safer for food contaminants and pathogens. I would argue bigger creates bigger problems.
