Please tell me I'm not the only one who didn't really understand this..
@11 Actually you are technically wrong, (which goes with your name), there is no such thing as a "baby cow". It is called a calf. The overall species are not cows. A cow is a female that has had a baby. That is like saying every human is a woman. The overall species is called cattle.
100, I've worked with cattle my whole life as well and while within our family we refer to them as heifers, steers, bulls, etc. we realize that most people see them as just "cows". There's nothing wrong with that and it's often difficult to explain the difference between the names anyway. It's silly to make people feel unnecessarily dumb (however fun it may be).
My whole family also calls them by there sex or age. Which is bull, steer, heifer, cow, or calf. I am not trying to sound mean. I am just trying to teach the public who uses the wrong terminology. It is one of my pet peeves. If some one sees a group of them just call them cattle, or if you see just one call it one head of cattle. That is the most correct term to use.
Also, cattle doesn’t have a singular form, aside from the technical term head of cattle. There isn’t a single word that means specifically a single cattle of unstated gender and age. As such, even though it’s technically inaccurate, cow is generally used in informal situations as the singular form of cattle. But even though a lot of people use cow as the term they are still wrong.
Why the hell did you have a needle around a calf ? It just doesn't seem like that would ever be a good idea.
First it's the vaccine, then you'll have the urge to eat grass. Then the transformation begins
Seriously though op, you should probably see a doctor or even question a vet about that, to make sure you won't get sick from the needle/vaccine! I imagine you could have some nasty side effects from stuff like that. Especially if the calf weighed more than you.
It begins with simple things. One's hair goes black with grey patches, and develop a rubbery reproductive organ and a butt hair problem. Then they have to resist the urge to eat dirt for fear of getting called a hippie. At this point they are long gone. Soon they develop a white-and-black body hair problem, begin peeing out of their buttholes and develop what is disturbingly similar to a cow tail. Their nails become hard and black and long and wide (That's what she said, one might add) and they are shorter. The next day is when the transformation is finally complete. Source: Come here and I'll show you where I found out... And I'll show you my syringe collection!
Don't you need to push the syringe in to get everything?.. I can see the cow kicking it into you but not being completely injected
Some livestock needles are like little guns, there's a trigger you pull and it quickly injects the needle and vaccine. Also, I think the FML was more to do with the fact that he was stabbed with a giant needle (since cow's have thick hides their vaccines have much bigger needles than ours)
