They were not selected for their creativity. Like us they have adapted to and taken advantage of the grass world domination. But unlike humans in the beer hypothesis cows haven't had their Monolith moment yet.



There have been many attempt to upgrade cows the last decade or so, Cows Are Way More Intelligent Than You Probably Thought

And sure, if the ability to hold a grudge is a sign of intelligence, cows are bright. Echolocating, whether in mazes or not, they probably are.

Which it turn means the cowbells may be a millennium-old imposition. GPS might be a better option for cow ears. We might have to start practicing our apology speech to a proper representative of bovinity.

The reality of owning cows isn't so glamorous. My grandfather raised them, prompting my dad to get involved when I was a kid. I do not miss the dumb beasts. The proclivity to make a ridiculously dumb choice, even given an obviously good/easy option to just follow the herd into a fresh field full of grass, was frustrating to say the least. The dumbest horse I've ever had would still be a gifted thinker in cow society.

The cow carbon hoofprint would be no smaller with fewer humans
These cows are not wild animals, they are raised by people. Less people raises less cows because there will be less demand for cow products. Capicce?

Or less people. Stop overpopulation and cows will not be a problem. As many other current problems.

The cow carbon hoofprint would be no smaller with fewer humans, though if there were too few humans the current cow population would have difficulty surviving.

Either we have to create a better cow, or we must have less of them.

Thus we can ask ourselves: Is it right to kill animals for food?
Course it is.
As it is right to kill them for pleasure, it's called hunting and it's a perfectly legal and regulated activity all over the world.

P.S. With age I've been slowly changing my views on hunting. Today, I'm not so sure about it.
