Daily Joke: Farmer Is Asked Why His Cow Has No Horns

One day, a fourth-grade class from Chicago went on a school field trip to a local farm. All of the children were very excited to see all of the barn animals. 

They arrived at the farm which had mostly cows and a few other animals. The farmer welcomed the children and the chaperones and then took the class on a tour.

First, they looked at the pigs, and the farmer explained that although they were covered in mud, the pigs were actually one of the cleanest animals on the farm.

Then the farmer showed the class all the chickens he had and their coop. He showed the children where the hens laid their eggs and explained that he loved having fresh eggs for breakfast each morning. 

Then he showed the class all of his cows. He had many different types of cows, which he kept for different purposes. He had milking cows, cows for meat, and of course, bulls for reproduction. 

The farmer then showed the class the milking room and explained how each cow got a turn to be milked. The class even got to watch one of the farmworkers milk a cow right in front of them!

One of the chaperones who was trying to get as much knowledge out of the farmer for the children as possible, asked, "So Farmer Brown, why doesn't that cow have horns?"

The farmer responded, "Well, there are many different reasons why animals do not have horns. Some breeds don't grow horns like the Angus cows, and some, like the Brahma, have horns that are too dangerous..."

"So we lop them off. It doesn't hurt them because there are no blood vessels or nerves in their horns. It's similar to us cutting out fingernails," the farmer explained. 

He then pointed to the animal the chaperone pointed out and said, "But there is a good reason why that particular animal does not have horns."

The chaperone responded, "Oh, and what would that reason be?"

The farmer began to laugh and said, "Well, because that's a horse."
