Thumbnail image for gicow.jpgA prized cow that sold at auction for $1.2 million is being compared to Tom Brady's wife. According to this piece in Popular Mechanics magazine, Missy, which commanded the hefty sum at the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair in Toronto, has superior genes, and perfect udders, teats, and legs. Said the mag: “Missy’s milk makes more cheese per volume because it’s so protein-rich." Prairie Farm and Ranch magazine then weighed in, calling the three-year-old Holstein “the Gisele Bundchen of cattle," and noting that Missy already has $3.23 million in pre-signed contracts, including 25 pre-sold embryos.
