Seen and herd

Just take a guess!

Why have the Danish purveyors of meat announced that the price of beef is about to rise – by a lot?

Simples? Have a go.

    Increased demand world wide. too many bloody wogs want to eat meat instead of grass.
    Increased cost of production. Regional droughts causing reduced yields in fodder, therefore prices up for fattening. Blame global warming and wog wars!
    Farmers getting out of animal rearing as profits too low.
    Health scares, Farmers having to reduce use of chemicals, increases costs of production. Blame EU regulations.
    Ragheads have all decided to let the cows out into Copenhagen to worship them? Can’t be rounded up and eaten?.

    I know you are both itching to see the answer. It’s gas. The gubmint is si desperate for new tax revenues they are charging for bovine flatulence. Only beef cattle, not milkers; don’t know why. Makes you want to…well…..fart. 😷

    The Danes are missing a trick here, then. By inserting a tube in the appropriate place on all cows and bulls and connecting the tubes to a suitable gas tank, they could be getting natural ( well not quite) gas for free.

    Janus: Denmark’s dairy exports are vital for the health of the Danish economy. Taxing dairies would put many out of business and cost more than would otherwise be gained.

    ….which proves that the gubmint’s tax is cynical rather than ecological.

    Isn’t it always, Janus?
