This work titled "Breeder," responds to a NYTimes article by an investigative reporter on the cruel experimentation being done at a USDA (Agriculture Administration) facility in Nebraska that exploits and experiments with female farm animals to create less care animals and increase births for the monetary benefits of the corporate farm business.

"Downed Cow" (Words used by workmen)

One bull after another jumped the young cow from behind.
Her head locked in place, there was no escape.
She jerked and bellowed rubbing her hide raw and bleeding.
Her screeching brought no help.
Legs and hips broken, she collapsed, a mass of flesh among
the hot steaming feces and urine on the barn floor.
