What the cows died of, is a highly infectious virus which is spread in their snot, and feces and just about anything they contact with their noses.
The emergency quarantine preseedures may be moot as it is said they were kept in a separatye herd in a small area.
Presumably disinfection and disposal will be up to standards...It is civilized in wisconsin ya know...
I dont think a huge outbreak is on the way, except that unusually cold weather may be a factor in other herds susceptability to similar bronchial infections.

Seem's to me if the cows died over 2-3 days or 1 week why would they be in one place when they died. They roam around. I was raised on a farm my whole life and cows roam day and night. If this was in Wisconcin I doubt if the ranches there are so big That the farmer hadn't been paying attention to his herd for very long. It's not like out west where the ranches cover hundreds or thousands of sq. miles. I don't know whats going on.

Because if 200 cows died in a herd of ....say 5000......then why weren't the rest of the herd affected?

That would be relevant ....yes?

I think its true that if poeple start a thread on the most mundane news at ATS then there is some huge conspiracy, but this is not. I mean how. i suppose this ties in with the animals dieing and the world falling apart but for my sanity this is just rubbish news.

(In Obi One Konobi's voice)

These are not the droids we looking for, move along!

Ya Bro it does. But if you had 5000 cows you would need to feed 5000 of bales a day at 6 dollars a bail.. See what I mean. 200 cows is a big heard to take care of.. You know how much land you would need to support 5000 cows ?

The ETs did it...

as terrible as a rancher as I might make... even I couldnt kill off 200 head of cattle in a night ...
in prolly realistically in something like 8 hours...

I phoned up Michio Kaku and he confirmed that the cows committed suicide.

Cows have died before so millions of them dying would not be strange using your logic, millions of them dying at the same second would be strange either, right? Birds die, fish die, cows die, volcanoes go off and ALL AT THE SAME TIME. That is the strange part, not the fact that a cow died.

I will make the same bet here that I have before. Everything that is occurring is normal, right? Then there is no reason to believe that things are going to get stranger. Tell me you believe that nothing uniquely weird will happen in the next two weeks and if it does you will rethink your position. What we are seeing is all of the outliers (things occur that are not within the formulas) occurring at the same time. That is not explainable by science without showing how these events are connected and that means there is a plan. The next question is then whose plan is it? The choices come down to man or God.

Cows die!


Yes Cows do die. However you do not get 200 cows on the same farm dying overnight. Cows are a heck of a lot harder to kill off than horses, sheep or goats.

As has been said if it was an illness a 10 Kilometer radius around that farm would be quarantined and every living creature except the humans would be killed. The humans would not be allowed out of the area.

Thems the international OIE rules for dealing with major disease.

It's a interesting story thats for sure.

But I have to nitpick here about something sorry.

I grew up in Texas so I can't help it.

The Plural form of "Cow" is "Cattle".
Use it.
"Cows" is a bad bad word. It makes us sad.

Thanks.


I nearly blew wine out of my nose on that one!!!! For real!! Ok, people, and fellow skeptics, overthinkers, and the likes - this is really not all that uncommon. It does happen. Herds of cattle can die off from red nose, fever, and a host of other sickness'. This story is peaking interest because of the other recent birds dying and the fish kills. Seriously though, let's think rationally and not fear monger! Lest we all find ourselves in straight jackets..

My source is my husband and his sister who have been raising Santa Gertrudis cattle since 1992.

The animal die-offs could be what causes the famines to begin. Since all these species are part of the food chain, the die-offs will affect other species along the chain over time. If it goes on long enough, it would have to have an effect.

“There is no faithfulness, no love,
no acknowledgment of God in the land.
2 There is only cursing,[a] lying and murder,
stealing and adultery;
they break all bounds,
and bloodshed follows bloodshed.
3 Because of this the land dries up,
and all who live in it waste away;
the beasts of the field, the birds in the sky
and the fish in the sea are swept away. "


I've been saying it, and I'll continue to say it - Biblical prophecy is coming true. We need to really take a good look at ourselves, and make yourself right with whoever is up there....even if it is Just in Case.

Although not the same in every individual infected, these are not humans. They are cows. A virus will not act that differently. And yes, it is possible to be killed over night by a virus en mass.

In a fertile area like Wisconsin you can probably figure 5 ac per cow so that is 1000 ac min for the farm. The average size of an American farm is around 400 ac.

Oh I forgot to add the average size cow herd in the USA is 30 cow/calf pairs. (2002 USDA Ag Census is where all this info is from)

Given land prices in the midwest, this is probably the guys entire herd. or his herd minus yearlings and breeding bull. We are talking about $200,000 bucks or more on the hoof depending on the breeding.
