Bringing one’s point across clearly definitely minimizes the risk of miscommunication, something a young bull wanted to avoid at all costs for today’s dose of laughter.
One of the nosy cows overheard the rancher when he talked about the arrival of a fourth bull on the ranch. After she told the other three bulls, they gathered for a serious discussion.

Not pleased by the news, the first bull said, “Boys, we all know I've been here for five years. Once we settled our differences, we agreed on which 100 of the cows would be mine. Now, I don't know where this newcomer is going to get HIS cows, but I ain't' giving him any of mine."
The second bull related to the sentiments of the first and added, "That pretty much says it for me, too. I've been here for three years and have earned my right to the 50 cows we've agreed are mine. I'll fight 'im till I run him off or kill him, but I'M KEEPIN' ALL MY COWS."
The third, and by far the youngest of the bulls, had no intention of giving up any of his cows either as he said, "I've only been here a year, and so far you guys have only let me have ten cows to "take care of." I may not be as big as you fellows yet, but I am young and virile, so I MUST keep all MY cows."

As the three bulls nodded in agreement, they heard the noise of an approaching truck that turned out to be so big; it took some maneuvering to get it to the pasture.
The three watched in horror as the biggest bull they had ever seen, started making his way down the steel ramp that strained heavily under his 4700-pound weight.
The first bull cleared his throat and said, “You know, it's actually been some time since I really felt I was doing all my cows justice, anyway. I think I can spare a few for our new friend."

The second bull nodded and said, "I'll have plenty of cows to take care of if I just stay on the opposite end of the pasture from HIM. I'm certainly not looking for an argument."
When the youngest bull said nothing, the other two looked over and saw him pawing the dirt, snorting and shaking his horns fiercely. Wanting to spare the youngster trouble, the first bull said, "Son, let me give you some advice real quick. Let him have some of your cows and live to tell about it."
The youngster realized that the other two misunderstood and said, "Heck, he can have ALL my cows. I'm just making sure he knows I'M a bull!"
In another farm-related joke of the day, a dairy farmer found out how easily an image can be worth the wrong thousand words.
