    Thank you for doing this story! I’v wondered about them, too. I called them “Generic Cows” – remember the ‘generic’ canned goods? They don’t look that fuzzy from the freeway.

    Cows without brands are harder to track down when stolen by all those Bay Area cattle rustlers. We’d better get some logos on them asap.
