A rancher in Texas is pouring beer into the hay his cows eat, claiming that the yeast in the beer promotes digestion, and helps to provide a marbling of fat, which improves the flavor. So this guy says his cows prefer hay soaked in beer, and why not?
It’s not like these cows have to drive anywhere.
The article doesn’t say if the cows get drunk, but honestly, if a cow was drunk, could you tell? What would you look for? Listless walking? Slurred mooing? Cows tipping themselves over?
I certainly hope that these cows drink responsibly, because the last thing I want to see is something with four stomachs throwing up.
