You bought a Jersey cow about five months ago, and you've been hand milking her every day since. She's developed a persistent case of mastitis that neither veterinary nor homeopathic medicine has cured. Usable milk production is at about three quarts (liters) per day and falling.
Over the past two weeks or so, you've noticed a steady increase in pain and numbness in your right hand and arm: the dreaded carpal tunnel syndrome. It's making milking a bit harder. It's making your day job working with computers harder as well.
Your cow may or may not have been successfully bred yet, but at best you've got at least seven months between now and a new baby calf (and the new milk supply that comes with it).
Winter is coming. You'll be needing to buy hay soon. In the background, you hear loud creaking, cracking, and crunching sounds as the economy teeters on the edge of the abyss.
