Dr. CUMMINGS: Don’t name your cows

Last week, my 20-year-old grandson, Michael, started his own beef cattle farm. He has a bull and about 20 bred cows, and he’s waiting for the calves to be born in December. He’s a very sensitive young man, full of love for these animals and dedicated to their care and feeding, but I hope he doesn’t name them. I hope -- when the time comes -- he can just load them up and ship them off without any teary goodbyes, or worse, yet -- without keeping one or two or three or more, as pets.
