Blog: Udderly reprehensible

Catherine Sleep | 10 August 2004

Doubtless the upcoming Olympic Games in Athens will throw up the usual scandals over substance abuse and general foul play as athletes strive to be the fastest and strongest.

You don’t expect this least savoury aspect of top level sport to be replicated at agricultural shows though. And yet one of Australia’s largest agricultural shows has been marred by ‘udder tampering’. Cattle owners were found to have injected their animals’ udders with an unknown substance to make them larger, and it is even suspected that farmers had glued their cows’ teats shut to stop milk leaking.

This is cruel and unusual , not to mention unsporting, behaviour and I hope severe punishment is meted out.

Poor show
