Have a cow!

Dear Editor,

I am tired of falling on deaf ears every time I stand by the milk section of the produce aisle in our local grocery stores. There I yell and question if we are indeed experiencing a shortage of cows. The ever-increasing price of milk is a mystery and a budget crisis! Is this the result of a government subsidy program gone awry?

I am the mother of teenagers, for whom it is nothing to inhale a gallon of milk a day, each! I don’t buy whole milk, which is a great savings both health and budget wise.

I am asking at this time for an explanation of the steady increase and high cost of milk. I would also like to know if within the city limits of Glenwood, I can have a cow on my property. I will appeal to the council to allow this rural asset. My neighbors could benefit from my livestock via fertilizer, mowing and milk.

If I am not allowed to have a cow, possibly we could just use the numerous golf courses for this purpose – a community cow pasture – what a great idea!
