Would you please tell me what 'cow slop' means here?
Please help! Thank you.
He hoisted a battered suitcase on his head and held a pail of cow slop in his free hand.
Thank you. I have looked it up before, but I'm still confused a little.
Is it mean ' wet feed for cow' then?
I hope my father doesn't feel faint if he ever learns this, but I thought you gave slop to pigs and you that cows got straw. Or hay. Or something.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
ps. I have just found this: This is a great thing for Nebraska because wet feeds are less costly for the plants (they don't have to spend the money or energy to dry the feed from the wet form to make DDGS), and the wet feeds are actually a better feed for feedlot cattle. Feeding in the wet form creates some challenges, but these can be overcome.
