French Cows Think They're French People

"The French are known to like their beef, and they also like their wine. In the southern village of Lunel-Viel, in the Hérault department in southern France, some farmers have taken the next step and are feeding wine to their beef cattle on the principle that if French beef tastes good now, it can only improve with a bottle of Saint-Geniès des Mourgues."

It's all fun and games until the British cows start up with lager and hornings.

So how do they tell the mad cows from the drunk ones?

Only lobster-fed lobster for me, please.

I would have assumed that even non-wine-drinking-cows spend their days tasting the terroir. Chewing it, even.

Do the cows smoke too?
