I've been doing this all along

Stephen emailed me a link to a news story about cattle farmers  feeding surplus or discarded food to cows this year, mostly prompted by the drought in the midwest. 

We discard more than half the food we produce, and I'm all for using a higher percentage -- heck, ALL of it! -- instead of just tossing it into the landfill. 

Mind you that I'm going to make compost out  of it, too -- but I'm going  to put it through a pig first, to get the best and highest use of it. 

They're talking about feeding marshmallows and gummy worms to cattle -- I prefer a more natural diet of fruit and vegetables, but to each their own.
