Wonder if there was a taco bell in the feed
Probably show up in a few weeks in their chalupas and burros, they only have to reheat the beef as it's already been cooked. Just to be informed I looked up nos of beefs (cattle) slaughtered annually in the US and it's as many as 36M . So there's the beef.

I remember many times driving through Nebraska in the summer and the smell for much smaller cattle collection and processing places could be picked up miles away, then many who live on Colorado's front Range from Denver on north can relate to the smell from the big meat processing plant in Greeley CO. But 18k dead cattle, what a disaster .

We help people sell their Rangers in the easiest way possible.
I had to read it 2x to believe it - 18,000 dead cows in dairy farm explosion, imagine how much future methane the atmosphere has been spared, maybe the EPA will relax those stricter emissions proposals. Still can't picture what kind of a mess and stench will be left behind.

Really hope the smoke inhalation knocked them out before the flames got to them. This is heartbreaking. The article says the injured cows that survived might "have to be destroyed". Poor cows... :(

Ohh how pleasant it is for me in Brighton when the wind blows southwest.

That's a lot of cows. I don't know how large our herd is but I can't imagine it's near that many.

dogfood prices should fall now that there is ample supply

Its one thing I recall from my youth, when the farm across the street would lose a cow, this company showed up with a dump body 3/4 ton and a winch and yank that carcass into the back.
I asked them where the dead cows go, and the driver said the dog food factory. Stuck with me ever since.
