The woman in that story was the daughter of Dartmouth grads, had multiple degrees, and had pretty damn good health insurance, access to preventive care, access to prenatal care, and access to good hospitals. She was a high risk patient because of her clotting disorder, but she had every other advantage and still wound up dead. When you see a disparity across the board even when you control for SES, you have to consider that your garbage healthcare system might be part of the problem.

[ ] Bad things won't happen to Dave's animals because Dave knows what he's doing.
[ ] Bad things only happen to Dave's animals because he is experimenting.

Select as appropriate

Is the Dave machine an animal?

Or is the Dave animal a machine?

Inquiring minds want to know.

what exactly is a "holistic" sheep?   in any case, my stock is coming from breeders that have been running  virtually maintenance free sheep for 20 years  selecting heavily the whole time.  it's possible I could have some losses, but they will be minimal.

As you are judging which sheep to use, what assurance do you give your investors that you are choosing correctly?  Or are you simply going to declare bankruptcy when you fuck up?

Just like Trump?

In this specific case, I'm not sure it's so linear. It sounds like part of the issue is higher incidence of cardiovascular disease in a population with both higher genetic predisposition and socioeconomic rsk factors, which interacts with general reduced preventative medicine to deadly effect.

I had egg laying chickens.

Boring.

I want egg laying chickens that require no grain (tillage is bad remember? (and fight back when attacked by dogs lol)

Where have you been all this time?
So a cassowary then. Good luck with nicking its eggs...

It doesn't seem to have occurred to him to grow no-till grain.  Or simply grow plants that chickens like. Sunflowers are pretty and chickens love sunflower seeds.

ETA: but sure - Dave, why don't you get cassowaries?  They'd probably be dog proof as well!
I'm open to any and all ideas.  that's one reason I post here.

 like I have said many times, the only animals I have real experience with are goats and cattle and sheep. I'm a complete newbie when it comes to chickens and rabbits and pigs.

Don't sell yourself short Dave.  If anyone wanted any chickens, rabbits or pigs dead, then you'd be the go to guy.

Only if that someone were shopping for 'road kill',  because that is the only animals that Dave could offer.

"virtually maintenance free sheep"

You do realize that "virtual" means not a fact in reality don't you?

Or can you demonstrate that there are actual "maintenance free sheep"?

I'm betting that you cannot.

ooooh, sounds awesome. Where do I sign up as an investor?

Please entertain us with your extensive 'expert' experience raising sheep, just to sweeten the pie a little.

Hey Dave, ever had your arm up to your shoulder inside a pregnant cow, trying to realign the calf so that it can be born naturally or pulled? I have. I doubt there's much you could teach me about raising cattle, that isn't utterly infested with your fantastical pronouncements and braggadocious optimism and empty misinformed rhetoric about ecology, and your utterly ridiculous claims about the implementation of animal husbandry.

But go ahead.

I know far more about raising cattle and sheep than you. And no I never have stuck my arm inside a cow to help in birthing and I never will need to.  The fact that you've done it shows that you don't know very much about raising cattle.
You ignorant numpty. You'll just ignore and/or wish any problems away, the hallmark of alternative-reality enthusiast fantasists such as yourself.

You are so hopelessly ineducable and militantly ignorant, I truly hope no more animals have to suffer under your misguided ministrations.

"flyblown lamb"

Lol
So it's fullblown retard adolescent fingers-in-the-ears 'nothing bad can happen to MY "holistic" sheep, nya nya', is it?
