Cows in a Globalized World

Ever heard/seen cows that eat Biscuits, Chocolates, Ice cream, etc out of choice and not out of starvation(Yes, there are several cows that eat the glue(made of rice batter) behind posters on the road and from dustbins because of hunger)?

Such are the cows that belong to the NJR family in Madanapalle of Chitoor District, Andhra Pradesh, India. They prefer BRITANNIA TIGER biscuits. Taste buds in action?;-)

Take a look: Click on the hyper linked title.

Aren't they adorable? The cow on the right hand side at the start of the video has an EGO issue, or does she seek attention? Try feeding her after you are done with feeding the rest of the cows and she will refuse to eat, try vice versa and it works. Amazing?:-)

Disclaimer:Ah well, I am aware that they are completely and terribly pampered but I sure am not interested in reading comments about how good or bad it is for Cows to be eating such food.

Reminds me of Ogden Nash's elegy with a little poetic liberty ...

The cow is of the bovine ilk;
One end is moo, the other, milk.
by eating it's own produce;
it teaches us the fundamentals of reuse.

Holy cow!! Them too!
I had a cat who used to thrive on ice creams! Ad I thought its probably coz she's pampered.....but then from what you say... I guess its just globalization! Nice :-)

PS - Could totally relate to 'Traffic Today' :-) Very cute post!
