Bull farmers host 'live sex shows'

June 14, 2006
http://www.dailytelegraph.news.com.au/story/0,20281,19472050-5001028,00.html

LIVE "sex shows" of bulls mounting a simulated cow have become a big attraction at an agricultural exhibition taking place in New Zealand.

The fake 'cow' – a small go-kart with natural cowhide on its roof – was developed by Ambreed New Zealand Ltd to collect semen from bulls more safely and efficiently and improve artificial breeding of cows.

Similar machines are widely used in Europe but have yet to be introduced in New Zealand, where dairy products are its largest export.

The go-kart, driven by a human operator, draws close to a bull and adjusts to the proper height.

The experience can be a little alarming.

"It's quite a daunting feeling when you consider you've got a bull there that weighs a thousand kilograms sitting on top of you and is in quite an aggressive mood," Andrew Medley, production manager at Ambreed, said.

Bull semen is commonly obtained using a rubber device which is put in place manually by two handlers.

Robert Cohen proposes a way for vegans to get their daily B-12 without taking supplements:

Warning to my readers: Today's column contains explicit sexual themes. If you embarrass easily, or if your religious, moral, or ethical beliefs prevent you from reading material of a sexual nature, please, read no more. In today's commentary, I discuss the science of sex in as dignified and delightful a manner as I am able, sometimes using a bit of humor, but continuously recognizing that such concepts may be offensive to some people, so please, if you find such discussion inappropriate, stop reading immediately. If you are easily offended by material of a sexual nature, please exercise the use of your "back" button now.

Without embarrassment, this is a subject that needs
to be discussed. I am past the point of being disgusted
by know-it-all vegetarian and vegan nutritionists and
dieticians who believe that one must take artificial
supplements derived from cow intestines, containing
Vitamin B-12 in order to maintain good health. The fact
that vegans have B-12 in their bloodstreams is evidence
enough that we're somehow obtaining it. Low dose, high
dose, it really doesn't matter. Fact is that we need
just a few micrograms of B-12, and a five-year supply
is stored in the average human liver. That fact alone
negates the scare tactics of those who criticize the
pure vegan diet, or dispense supplements as a part of
their self-sustaining practices.

Vegan blood contains some B-12. In that, there is no
debate. Vegan semen and vaginal secretions contain many
times more Vitamin B-12 than does human blood.

The solution? Make love. Enjoy oral sex. The ingestion
of sexual body secretions from your lover will insure
good health for you.

In addition to the usual frogs, snails, and puppy
dogs tails, what are little boys made of? What exactly
is in semen?

Ten percent of semen consists of sperm cells, up to
500 million per ejaculate. It takes only one sperm
cell to fertilize an egg. I often wonder why the other
499,999 are necessary.

What constitutes the other 90% of semen? In addition
to enormous amounts of vitamins, enzymes, and amino
acids, semen contains up to 20 times the level of
Vitamin B-12 as does human blood serum. Vaginal fluids
contain a similar makeup, rich in B-12.

Scientists knew this nearly 20 years ago, but had no
socially-tactful way to transmit this information to
the lay person. (Yeah, I know, you love my use of the
English language).

As early as March of 1984, Carmel Bernstein and a team
of investigators published evidence in the Journal of
Clinical Investigations (73;3, Vitamin B-12 in human
seminal plasma) revealing that blood has one-tenth the
amount of B-12 as does male semen.
Eight years later, the Scandanavian Journal of Clinical
Laboratory Investigations (Hansen, 1992 Nov;52(7):647-52)
determined that B-12 levels in human semen run as high as
20 times that of blood. Similar amounts of B-12 have been
found in vaginal secretions.

Second and final warning. For those of you unwilling or
unable to discuss or partake in the loving art of cunnilingus
or fellatio, read no more. What follows is descriptive.

Many people have an aversion to oral sex because of the
taste or smell. Can that often be justified? Absolutely.

Long ago, in the days before artificial modern-day perfumes
and deodorants were used to mask human odors, people
enjoyed body smells. Don Juan would keep handkerchiefs
under his armpits and wave them in front of ladies' noses.
That action was designed to bring them to arousal from his
own natural essences and bouquet which contained pheromones,
chemicals containing natural sexual messengers that
communicate instinctual feelings shared by all mammals.
Truth revealed: Why does a male dog mount and hump a human
female leg, thrusting his pelvis as if in the act of copulation?
It's not because he smells your puppy, ladies. It's because
he smells your very own pheromones which trigger a genetically
pre-determined fixed action pattern in Fido's brain.

On to the olfactory bouquet from your own essences.

Dairy farmers know that if their cows eat onions or
garlic less than 30 minutes before milking, those powerfully
offensive smells will be included in their body secretions
which are then transmitted to their milk. A similar event
occurs with human body fluids. You are what you eat. Deer
know when meat-eating humans walk into the woods. Vegans
have a way with denizens of the forest. Vegans do not eat
other living creatures. Deer can tell by human smells.
So can dogs and other mammals possessing keener olfactory
senses than humans.

For many years, non dairy-using Japanese people called
Americans "butter-people," for the rancid smell that
would seep out of our pores. I can smell butter people.
I am amazed at the number of people calling themselves
vegan who are actually dairy users. I can smell the
aftermath of pizza 24 hours after a vegan eats one by his
or her offensive odor. The mozzarella turns rancid from
within. Its smell lingers on a user's breath. Milk the
cow and get the garlic or onion milk. Milk the human and
get Kentucky-fried chicken essence.

Humans who eat meat ingest large amounts of sulfur-based
amino acids. That is one of the qualities of meat protein.
The sulfur becomes a part of their own smell and taste. Eat
large amounts of methionine and you'll taste quite rancid.

I have met many vegans who relate anecdotal evidence
of how other vegans make better lovers because they
"taste better." Where are Masters and Johnson when you
need them? The good that comes from this column will
result in two lovers enjoying a large meal of fresh
pineapple before their next bout of foreplay. Gourmets
and epicurians of the world, unite. Your next dose of
love will contain the best vitamin pill in the world.
Was it Mary Poppins who sang, "Just a spoonful of sugar
helps the medicine go down"?

Remember, for B-12, make love, and do so with good taste.

Congress Poised to Pass Bill Taking Away Your Right to Know What's in Your Food

http://www.democracyinaction.org/dia/organizationsORG/oca/campaign.jsp?campaign_KEY=2752

Tell your Congressman or Congresswoman to vote "No" on House of Representatives Bill H.R. 4167, the "National Uniformity for Food Act," coming to a vote in Washington, D.C this Thursday, March 2

The House of Representatives will vote this week on a controversial "national food uniformity" labeling law that will take away local government and states' power to require food safety food labels such as those required in California and other states on foods or beverages that are likely to cause cancer, birth defects, allergic reactions, or mercury poisoning. This bill would also prevent citizens in local municipalities and states from passing laws requiring that genetically engineered foods and ingredients such as Monsanto's recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone (rBGH) be labeled.

The House will vote March 2, 2006 on a bill that would gut state food safety and labeling laws. H.R. 4167, the "National Uniformity for Food Act," lowers the bar on food safety by overturning state food safety laws that are not "identical" to federal law. Hundreds of state laws and regulations are at risk, including those governing the safety of milk, fish, and shellfish. The bill is being pushed by large supermarket chains and food manufacturers, spearheaded by the powerful Grocery Manufacturers of America.

Big food corporations and the biotech industry understand that consumers are more and more concerned about food safety, genetic engineering, and chemical-intensive agriculture, and are reading labels more closely. They understand that pesticide and mercury residues and hazardous technologies such as genetic engineering and food irradiation will be rejected if there are truthful labels required on food products. Industry-sponsored H.R. 4167 is gaining momentum and must be stopped! Act now! Preserve local and regional democracy and protect yourself and your family from unsafe food by sending an email or calling your Representative and urging them to vote "No" on H.R. 4167.

Please Take Action Now--Send a Message to Your Congress Member in the House of Representatives to Vote "No" on H.R. 4167 (read full text of the bill here)
