ASTURIAN VALLEY

We're a cow.

It's a very large –

ASTURIAN VALLEY

We're a breed of beef cow.

REPORTER

Yes. A very large breed of cow.

ASTURIAN VALLEY

We like to eat.

REPORTER

Yes. They have enormous foraging ability.

ASTURIAN VALLEY

Enormous what?

REPORTER

Foraging ability. You forage. You wander about collecting food.

ASTURIAN VALLEY

We don't collect it. We eat it!

REPORTER

Yes. Enormously.

ASTURIAN VALLEY

In great quantities.

REPORTER

Which makes you large.

ASTURIAN VALLEY

Very large.

REPORTER

The Asturian Valley was very popular in ancient times –

Like last year?

No. Like a very very long time ago.

ASTURIAN VALLEY

What happened?

What do you mean?

ASTURIAN VALLEY

Well, what happened to us? Why aren't there so many of us around anymore?

Specialized European breeds.

ASTURIAN VALLEY

Specialized what?

REPORTER

Specialized European breeds were introduced and you guys –

ASTURIAN VALLEY

Yes?

REPORTER

Well, you guys just weren't as popular anymore. Anyway, I understand you're very calm animals and easy to handle.

ASTURIAN VALLEY

Well, you'd be calm too if you were eating all the time. We do have four stomachs* to please, now don't we? Have you ever thought of how time-consuming it is to keep four different tummies in your body happy and full?

REPORTER

Well, no, I –

ASTURIAN VALLEY

Specialized European breeds, humph!

REPORTER

Yes, well, thank you for your time.
