Feed Lot Reality: It’s Not Pretty

My friend Mitch works on a feed lot in southern Alberta, and he borrowed my Canon GL2 video camera for a while. I thought he was just using it to make videos of his cute daughter Mia, but he also used it for this “feedlot reality TV video” that, frankly, is one of the most disgusting things I’ve seen in my life: a cow has an 80 pound abscess (from an injury) and to help the cow they need to drain the abscess…and this is a video of them doing just that. It’s not for the squeamish, but it’s also interesting in a gross kind of way. šŸ˜‰

    “I don’t want to get any on me or the camera.” – That’s probably a good decision on his part. šŸ˜‰

    No kidding ewww! Why on earth did I watch that?! At least part two can’t be any worse… right?

  • Holy. Crap.

    I’m in the IT department of a large veterinary-related organization, so I’ve seen some crazy stuff… but that was just nasty.

    I have to agree, that was just nasty and I grew up on a farm…
