Friday morning, about 3:20 a.m., a suspicious fire broke out among the hay stacks at the Big Sky (factory) Dairy halfway between El Paso and Las Cruces, New Mexico. It was the second such suspicious fire at the dairy in recent months.
After achieving containment of the blaze by the five fire departments that responded, it was concluded there wasn't enough water in the entire Chihuahuan desert between New Mexico and Texas to extinguish it. As a result, it was decided to let the fire burn itself out. As of Saturday night, it is still burning. Estimated cost of the damages have been set at $400,000.
The cows at Big Sky, bearing a strange resemblance to Palestinians in the Gaza strip, are subjected to overcrowded conditions in land plots ankle to knee deep in manure where their herds are reduced to their only reason for existence -- to eat between milkings (which in Gaza equates to "eat between killings"). The remainder of their time they are free to stand around (or lie) in their own excrement the rest of their days awaiting their next dinner.
Some conjecture Big Sky cows may now be in some kind of unwilling, yet sympathetic, fast in their support against the conditions they are forced to endure their entire lives!
As for the $400,000 in hay that was to feed them but is now going up in smoke instead, and those who would say, "That ain't hay!" Dada can only respond in support of the cows, "Bull!"
