PREG CHECK AND CULL HEIFERS EARLY
Many ranchers choose to breed the replacement heifers about a month ahead of the mature cows in the herd.

THE WORLD ACCORDING TO HOOTER MCCORMICK -- FAKED OUT-PART IV
“Admittedly, somewhat brilliant in its simplicity.” That's how Myron—just Myron—characterized Marsha Caterwauller's plan to fleece investors and the public by building a company selling plant-based of cell-cultured meat replicas, which would beat the competition by selling real meat, but calling it fake.
