It's Also Where White Castle Burgers Come From…

In 2002, Chuck Shepard’s News of the Weird mentioned a Wall Street Journal dispatch from Cuba, suggesting that Fidel Castro’s 1987 vision of “apartment cows” was still a ways off. (Castro had pushed farmers to breed small cows, not much larger than dogs, that families could keep in small homes and that would supply their minimum daily quantities of milk.) Two months after that story ran, a farmer in Rockwell, Iowa, said he had bred such miniature cows but that they were not good milk producers. Cut to September 2004: An Associated Press dispatch from San Juan Y Martinez, Cuba, touted rancher Raul Hernandez, who has now apparently successfully created a small herd of 28-inch-high cows that can deliver about five quarts of high-quality milk.
