is shipping season.
Normally, the Carharts hanging on a ranch
house back porch flavor the air with cow manure, wet
dog, horse sweat and diesel fuel, but on shipping
day, the wonderful aroma is roast beef, potatoes and
apple pie cooking in the kitchen.
Its payday for ranchers who after depleting
previous years’ profits, keep giving it a go betting
it will be a boomer next year.
I pray God will continue to bless them with
optimism because the trophy wife and I are on a
training ration requiring an enormous amount of
We run on steak.
Shipping day changed after I graduated vet
than being saddled at sunrise, today I pull up to
the corrals after the cattle are gathered and the
calves have been sorted and sexed—meaning the calves
are pulled from their mommas with the steer calves
separated from the heifer calves.
Boy calves are physiologically different from
girl calves, so they feed different, gain different
and suffer different health risks during the feeding
This brings me to my point.
This same physiological difference between
human boys and girls was acknowledged for centuries,
but not anymore.
The ruling class purposely blurs the lines
between boys and girls by promoting the illusion
that one’s sex is determined by a state of mind.
Boys can be girls, girls can be boys, men can
be boys, men can be girls, women can be boys and
women can be girls.
Once leftists threw sexual preference into
the mix, adolescence became even more confusing.
Now, boys can be girls and like boys or
girls, girls can be boys and like boys or girls, men
can be boys and like boys or girls, men can be girls
and like boys or girls, women can be boys and like
boys or girls and women can be girls and like boys
Somehow, progressives champion this insanity
as the ideal.
Collectivists recently scored a huge victory
in their war on sexual identity when the Boy Scout
Board of Directors unanimously accepted girl scouts
into the cub scouts.
“There is absolutely no difference between
girls and boys,” the spokesman boldly stated.
Here is the truth:
Boys and girls are different and sex is
determined in the chromosomes at conception.
If progressives ever target the cow business,
I fear they will dictate sexing calves into ten
different pens and will begin discounting Charolais
cross calves for having white privilege.
Shipping season will never be the same, so
when it is gone, I will surrender my shingle and
settle for the chicken.
