A Fair Shake

If you see a cow in a television commercial, it's almost always a Holstein. I don't know why the industry is partial to Holsteins and intolerant of other breeds of cattle. Do casting directors post signs outside their doors that say, COMMERCIAL AUDITIONS, HOLSTEIN CATTLE ONLY? Do agents refuse to represent Shorthorns or Guernseys because of hide color?

Holsteins are beautiful and personable dairy cattle, but so are Jerseys, Brown Swiss, and Ayrshires. Beef breeds like Herefords, Charolais, and Braunveighs are also lovely. Of course, I'm favorably inclined towards an Angus-Hereford cross cow, who could surely play the part of Cow with as much aplomb and charm as any Holstein. 

In case Chick-fil-A or is scouting (on this page, no less) for a new Cow, I've included a few examples of ours for their consideration.
