I may have found the answer to why that feedlot west of Twin Falls Idaho last June was full of Jersey cows instead of the Holsteins that other dairy feedlots have. I think the answer comes with the fact that MacDonalds recently announced that they are switching from margarine to butter in all their products—which means MacDonalds will be buying five or six hundred million more pounds of milk per year, according to an article in the New Yorker online magazine. Somebody at that factory dairy operation knew that those brown cows have higher butterfat in their milk. And a nice herd of Holsteins might have gotten sold at a discount. PH
