    I happen to be a Wisconsinite and live very close to an organic dairy
    far, (26 cows, I don't know how he does it). I was recently our to
    California and had to chuckle at the "happy cow" idea. I saw severl
    thousand in one lot. All lined up. Bet they moved about ten miles their
    whole lives.

    It might get cold here, but my neighbor's cows are teken care of well.
    Either, way, those cows aren't happy so much as content.

    I trust his milk more than any California stuff. I go bulk tank, though.
    No need to pasteurize.

    I guess the alllure is that critter that gave you food was at one time
    happy, and had it good; and that perhaps you're just doing that animal
    the favor of giving it life through consumerism.

    It is a little odd, though, to show these animals so flippin' elated.
    They rassle and hump around; but they show signs of health more than
    happiness. Thing is, the more you deal with animals, the more relaxed
    you get. You relax them with your calm. That way, no ones dancing
    around. Just hangin'.

    Well, one could hope that your neighbor's cows stay healthy - there
    are plenty of reasons to pasteurize.
