"It’s a Hard Time to Be a Farmer These Days"

The explanation given by a neighbor of the man who's end is told in this disturbing story from my home state — Farmer kills 51 cows then turns gun on himself.

He left "a note on the door that said not to come in and to call the police" in an effort "to save any family or friends from having to discover him." We learn that "Mr. Pierson was a well respected dairy farmer."

The response of the community was impressive, as farmers "came together and dug a large trench beside the barn to bury the bodies of the cows" and "[o]ut of respect for Pierson’s family the men said they would leave any comments on the matter to the police and Pierson’s widow."

Its terrible, because if he could have just held out another 5 years, farming would be a veritable gold mine.

Not only farming, but all forms of self-production and real manufacturing from the small business.

We must not become despairing or fatalistic, but watchful and prayerful in our actions.

Killed only the milk cows. That seals the deal. It wasn't suicide, but a drug related killing.

There's not much talk about it, but there's an underground industry where dairy cows have been genetically altered to produce some of the most desirable designer drugs.

adding on. Most people think 'milk-plus' or 'miloko' is drug laced milk. Not so. Its made from genetically altered cows.

It's not illegal, but its manufacturing and distribution to malt shops and coffee shops where it can be purchased is highly regulated by organized crime.

Most people think they can't do without their morning high priced Starbucks because its so tasty, not so, they don't even know their hooked on Miloko plus Drencrom made from genetically altered cows.

Procopius, yes, more farmers should listen to Jim Rogers.

Steven, I pray you're right (and wish I had some more productive skills).

love the girls, I was unable to come up with a more plausible reason of why he killed only the milk cows.

LTG: When you figured it out, were you also reminded, by any chance, of the "hot milky chai" in Anthony Burgess' Clockwork Orange?

"were you also reminded, by any chance, of the "hot milky chai""

I can't say I was. But I can say my first clue was "Brown said. “It was a very unusual, bizarre case."

Which means they're hiding what they know to protect themselves. And since we now know Clockwork Orange wasn't fiction but faction similar to Malachi Martin's books, it was easy to put the parts together given what has come out recently on the gnomes and the manipulations that have been going on behind closed and locked doors.
