Canadian Cattle Fed Red Wine to Produce Better-Flavored Beef

Some Angus cattle ranchers in British Columbia claim that cattle fed red wine produce more flavorful meat, so their cattle get a bucket of red wine with their meals.

Canadian officials weren't too sure that cattle fed red wine would be safe to eat. After investigation, officials decided that since the cattle were being fed actual wine, not winery waste, the practice posed no risk to humans.

Still, all of this begs some obvious questions: If cattle intake too much wine, do they become moozy? Will menus list cowbernet steaks? And will this make cows easier to tip?
