I recall when in high school here in the US, one of the annual science fair exhibitors was a girl in my class who did her exhibit on milk. She knocked the sox off the judges because it was so detailed, comprehensive and even a little elaborate, showing how milk is used in so many products, food and otherwise. One of the judges commented, "This is really well done, except you don't show where milk comes from. Why not?' The girl hemmed and hawed for a few moments until the judge asked, "You DO know where it comes from, don't you? So please tell us." More hemming and hawing until a mousey voice said, "From a factory?" This was in 1961, so what you're saying isn't so rare at all. At least here in the ignorant USA. Good luck on the cows.

It gives the reader something to look for so they aren't distracted by the total lack of content in your writing. – Anonymous How much difference is there between an Obama nation and an abomination?
