“Flats” had a problem. He was flatulent. The ranch raises healthy steers, well cared for, but the flatulent thing was attracting the attention of visitors touring the ranch who were socially well above this type of “release.” Lots of talk was going in Washington at that time about a cow tax, methane tax, excreta egress tax or cow “burp” tax. Although most thought it was just a lot of hot air, some were more concerned. He was sure-enough setting a bad example to the other steers, and especially the younger heifers. Imitation is not always an honorable sign of flattery — or flatulence. His bad example forced the ranch to process him right when his horns were really shooting out.
