World’s tiniest cows to produce world’s tenderest steaks
Science News: A group of researchers from The University Of Tokyo have successfully bred the world’s smallest cow, allowing restaurants and supermarket to sell what will be the world’s tenderest steaks.
“These tiny cows consume less grain, produce less CO2 and – more importantly – taste absolutely amazing,” said Dr. Hiroshi Maruyama.
The research team said they initially came up with the idea to genetically create a tiny cow because they found average-sized steaks to be too filling. “Most people don’t want to digest huge amounts of meat for dinner,” said Dr. Maruyama.
“These steaks are not only delicious, but are also not too heavy in the stomach. The only problem so far is when we have to round them up to be slaughtered. They may be tiny, but they still make a lot of noise.”
“The tiny, terrified mooing sounds they make on the way to the mini-slaughterhouse we built will stay with me forever.”
