A novel way to recycle your phone books

 This is another excerpt from the "Eat Wild" website, that I wanted to post on here.... Why is it that we always make the cows eat everything?

 "Animal researchers have discovered an efficient way to recycle paper: feed it to cows! In a dubious feeding experiment, scientists ground up telephone books, glossy magazines, computer cards, computer printout sheets, newspapers, cardboard boxes, feed sacks, brown bags, and coasters. Then they soaked the paper in whey to make a sort of paper mache. "Based on in vitro digestibilities," they reported in the Journal of Dairy Science, "we conclude that it is possible to recycle selected paper/whey combinations through ruminants."
"Possible, yes. But desirable??"
