Across The Grain, Bret A. Ross

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

I sell bull sperm.

I travelled the crazy international circuits out of Wisconsin where dairying is king and prize bulls give their all for one hay-filled room and three square meals a day. If bulls had brains they'd nearly be humans and would reap the benefits of their animal enthusiasms.

They could have my job.
