He’s like the Julia Child of bovine reproduction.  And I mean that as a form of flattery.  There is nothing, and I really mean nothing, messier and smellier than learning how to detect pregnancies in cows.  But when you have a man in a pink apron with a booming English-sounding accent leading you on a blind tour of the bovine reproductive tract via the rectum, it makes it all worth it.  Even the cows were delighted and entertained by his effervescent enthusiastic tour of their organs via the trap door.
