One of my distant relatives Sir Algenon Muff became aware of how empty the fields on his estate were. "I was struck by the notion that large, grass-eating, milk-producing, edible mammals would be a positive boon". he later proclaimed.
After several early attempts, including a winged version that immediately flew away, Sir Muff came up with a prototype of the mooing creature we know and, in some cases, love today. A superb example of great British knowhow.
