A standalone short story about farming, cows, and science gone mad. When local farmer Gerald notices one of his cows acting in an unusual way, he at first thinks nothing of it. But as the animal exhibits more signs of intelligent thinking, an odd rivalry springs up between the farmer and his cow...
