Hidden Farmer Cam

Nothing beats documentation when you want to prove animal abuse. Let us introduce Exhibit A, the hidden farmer camera from last week in the calf barn.


Did you see the cruelty? Did you see the abuse? Trust me, it takes a trained eye to see things sometimes, but if you missed it this time you are as blind as a bat!


Now, did you see it? Let's pull a frame out to highlight the abuse.


Preferential feline treatment such as this should not be excused! Contact the news media, social media, and the....the.....the media media! Let our voices be heard!

Cows first! Cats second! Cows first! Cats second!

I imagine farmers from all over the planet are letting cows play second fiddle to barn cats and that is abuse! We have to stop the cycle! It isn't right, and if we all band together we can change farmers. We can change farms. We can change food processors. We can change the food distribution network. We can change grocery stores. We can change restaurants.

I propose we start a campaign to make sure the dairy products everyone purchases is sourced from cows and calves that were fed before any farm cats. There should be a label on the dairy products you purchase. Look for it.

Contact your favorite hipster restaurant and make sure they serve the right kind of dairy products. Lets start the official #CowBabeArmy and go after anyone that disagrees with us sells milk from farms that gives preferential treatment to cats over cows and calves. Maybe a Cows First Facebook Page to be the heartbeat of our cause?

Remember, those that disagree with us obviously are animal abusers. If we yell loud enough we can drown out their voices and put them in their place.

Butter, Meat, and Cheese Are Good For You?!?

No, you are not living in The Matrix. I am talking about how all the stuff you've gone to great lengths to exclude from your diet has been wrong. 

Go ahead and do the  happy dance. Or at least sway to the beat like this.

This phenomenal new way of thinking about healthy eating for people is in a book by Nina Teicholz called The Big Fat Surprise: Why Butter, Meat and Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet. Take a look at this interview where she lays out her reasoning.

Larry Parks Interviews Nina Teicholz about The Big Fat Surprise: Why Butter, Meat and Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet from LarryParks on Vimeo.

Is it all crazy talk? Well, the Wall Street Journal argues that she has a fact based argument on why low fat nutrition advice is wrong. If it is true then you have one more reason to enjoy our delicious milk and the healthy dairy products made from it.

Ice Cream and Science

Two terrible things can happen in the middle of summer: you can get stupid from being out of school and you can get hot. But what if you could cure both of those ills with one delicious treat? Hmmmm.....

July is National Ice Cream month and there is no better way to cool down than to do so with scoops of your favorite flavor. But don't get a brain freeze thinking that the cold freezey treat is a simple thing. There's science stuff going on here with ice cream.

How do you make the best ice cream? Lets watch a video. Feel free to grab some ice cream to munch on first.

Now that we've got your taste buds salivating for more and your brain fully pumping, lets go out on the edge of ice cream science. Now that we know how to make the best tasting ice cream, why not explore the best shaped ice cream?

Researchers at MIT have created a 3-D ice cream printing machine. Ladies and gentlemen, simply put, we have entered a new world of ice cream.

Now go out and scoop yourself up some ice cream, celebrate National Ice Cream month, and think some science thoughts. You're practically a genius already.
