Quote from Michael Healey's "The Drawer Boy"

Morgan in Michael Healey's The Drawer Boy:
Well, the way we choose which cow to kill for meat is related to milk output. Lowest producer gets the axe. The cows know this, and they produce as much milk as they can, to keep from - you know - being chosen...Go into the barn, sit down with the cows. At first, they'll seem real casual. But just watch them for a while, and before long you'll see just how much pressure they're labouring under.
