As a cattle person, I need to weigh-in on the “mass cattle die-off” video that’s going around.

I know that video clip going around looks awful, but let me give some context here.

There has been extreme heat and humidity in Western Kansas and cattle have died. This is normal, and 10,000 head total statewide is not a “mass die-off that will cripple the beef supply.” Not even close.

There are roughly six million cattle in Kansas. Of those, over two million are “on feed” in confinement feedlots in the western half of the state.

In the former United States, something like 125,000 head of cattle are slaughtered per day, Monday through Friday, with a reduced kill on Saturday. So, as you can see, 10,000 deads in a heatwave is statistically insignificant.

The cattle shown in the video were not on pasture, they were in a confinement feedlot, as we can see by their size and the reportage says “fat cattle”. That means: in the feedlot approaching slaughter weight. They were not on ranches, grazing. They were in feedlots. Standing on dirt, in fenced pens, eating grain (corn) and drinking water from feed troughs all day every day. These cattle hadn’t seen a ranch, or eaten a blade of grass, in months.

The reported “epicenter” of this heat event was Ulysses, KS. That’s my old stomping grounds, and I would take a spitball guess that within a 100 mile radius of Ulysses, KS there are close to a million cattle on feed in confinement feedlots, maybe more.

So 10,000 dead, statewide, really isn’t a “massive die-off”.

We are subjected to lies constantly, coming out of the propaganda press it is an assault on the American people. I believe nothing of what I hear, read or see on tv, until I confirm it myself and then still have doubts.

Love Ann’s tell it the way it is. Had no idea she was into cattle.

There is way too much doom porn around and we all just suck it up like pigs at a trough without investigating. Thanks for the article.

The point isn’t that the cattle died; the point is HOW the cattle died. Very disturbing stuff. Someone said the water supply was poisoned.

Ann is a brilliant woman. I learned a lot from her regarding sociopaths and narcissists.
She is a staunch Roman Catholic. I was raised RC and later on took a class on biblical keys to research. That paved the way for me to become non denominational. I shared a few things with her. To say the least, she didn’t want to hear it. It happens.
One can be a tremendous expert on one item and unwilling to unlearn something in another area. At least I tried.

Yes, I’ve followed her off and on for the last 10 years or so. I’m actually surprised some nut job mooslim has not found her and tried to do her in.

And yes, she is an Uber-Catholic and am not surprised that she did not want to here you on what you had to say regarding that religion.

She openly invited “THEM” on more than one occasion. She even included specific and detailed directions to the front door, of the home she formerly lived in years ago.

I don’t think she ever came around and realized the Mooslims didn’t do 9/11.

It was an inside job, perpetrated by the globalists and put into play by Georgie boi, who introduced us to the necessity of the UnConstitutional patriot act & homeland security agency or we will all be murdered laws. And our erected overlords buy into this shit every time.
Unless they make waves on a regular basis as they are supposed to and question everything, like Marjorie Taylor Green, Rand Paul, Chip Roy of Texas, Hawley of Missouri, and a few others, don’t vote for anyone presently in office. Clean the house, it’s getting too damn dirty in here. And they all need to get out and remember what it’s like to have to actually work for a living again.

One reason I don’t like the explanation of inside job is that it communicates that it was someone in our gubmint that planned this attack. I don’t believe that. I believe that Israhell planned it and carried it out as the folks that swore to uphold the constitution got their marching orders to stand down.
The most complete truth teller I know on this topic is Christopher Bollyn.

Much like the news of an unwarranted attack on Ukraine, the context is essential.
Thanks for clearing this up! On its face you really can’t believe any news anymore.
Thanks to NCR for including this.

So far, I’ve seen nothing on the fact that at least 20% of these cattle died with their leg in the air. This does not seem consistent with anything but a sudden death via some type of quick-acting toxin, and definitely NOT weather-related, IMHO.

The position of the cattle is due to rigor mortis and bloating, the same as happens to humans. But unlike humans, when four legged animals assume the position of ‘forever sleep” (on open ground) their corpse is unable to become prostrate, similar to bipedal humans, and two of our (4) limbs being “arms” also plays a role. So, as rigor sets in on a four legged animal (unable to become prostrate), which will almost always die settled on the bulk of its right or left side, the stiffened legs have no choice but to assume the position seen in the video.

Lmao, that’s what dead cattle do. I’ve seen plenty of that over the years.

I’m not an expert but I am suspicious of any catastrophe that is weather related. Not every catastrophe that is weather related in weather warfare, weather modification. However, Ann’s explanation give no mention of any possibility of weather wars or climate manipulation that led to the terrible end of these cattle. To me, that’s the other extreme when geoengineering is never mentioned as the catalyst.

A lot of alternative news sites need to do actual journalism. Sky is falling reporting attracts traffic but at the end of the day is shown as unreliable gossiping and fear mongering.
I’ve abandoned dozens of sites over the years because of this. Some even dig their heels in when shown to be wrong. Sad.

Tragic loss of cattle. Could have fed thousands of people.

From the bottom of article’s page, “Bruce Jenner is a man. And furthermore I consider that islam must be destroyed.”
Even if BJ had never had his male genitals removed, that still would not necessarily mean that he was, or is, in fact a “man.”
And as far as “Islam must be destroyed” goes, that is a fait accompli awaiting the return of our Lord Jesus.
