    They’re called canulas, and allow one to collect samples directly from the rumen for analysis. Some of the scientists where I work are engaged in research like this. (I live smack-dab in the heart of beef country.)

    Hope the farmer’s wife doesn’t wander into the barn half-asleep and stick a load of washing in.


    put these on fat bitches to save them the trouble of being bulemic


    The video lacks a full picture of the living cow and the woman sticking her hand in it. The closeup shot is just too “easy” to fake for 15 minutes of Internet Fame.

    But then again… considering the size of the U.S. meat industry, this would make perfect sense.


    Just one more reason I don’t eat meat.

    100% fake.

    I don’t think I should have to run through the digestive process to back that up but this would simply kill the damn cow. Let alone the risk of infection.

    Fake. I’m not saying the picture is. I’m saying the cow is.

    Sorry dude, but it’s 100% true. Just google “cow canula”. You’ll find a wealth of information on the subject. I first heard about them way back in the ’80s. Even back then I thought it was damned creepy.


    Hey! Here’s another nifty picture. This one is heart-warming, ’cause it has a kid! msucares.com/news/print/cvm/cvm06/images/060330_steer200sm2.jpg


    “Just one more reason I don’t eat meat.” Lol wut? You dont eat meat because of animal research?


    I’ve looked up close at one of these at CSU. You could look inside and see a sloshing wave of digesting cud. What disgusted me the most was the fly that would occasionally fly in and out of the hole.


    Mmmm meat.

    Please support PETA:

    Also, this is fuckin awesome. Now if we did it to polar bears [which logic would conclude that they are really really cold inside] we could store frozen hamburger IN POLAR BEARS. And beer too.


    I don’t support PETA and I don’t eat meat because I don’t want to support the need for scary shit like this. And after a year, meat just doesn’t even sound appealing anymore. At all.


    I’m vegetarian as well and, although canulas reduce the life expectancy of cows, important research is being done at places like the University of Guelph.

    I did what you said.

    I don’t see how the cavity allows for the gaseous element ordinarily necessary to digestion to function nor does it make any sense that the cavity does not become infected. They must pump them full of some nasty stuff to take care of the infections. Still can’t figure out the digestion though.

    Fucked up. Makes no sense. Hail science and our answer to the great questions.



    Just shows how awesome MCS is. Good job Tiki.


    I don’t get what the PDF is supposed to tell me about important research. It just seems to be technical information on one type of device. Am I missing something?


    Yeah this is accurate, though normally they have a plug so there isn’t a large gaping hole in there. We have a bunch of these at the University I’m at right now.


    lol vegetarians enjoy poor health and insufficient nutrients

  • Here's a few awesome images!
