A salesman was driving through the country when a severe windstorm blew up. The wind was blowing so hard that a herd of cattle he passed was leaning precariously at a 45-degree angle. Concerned about their safety, the salesman drove to the farmer's house to warn him. The farmer saw him drive up and came out to the car, battling the fierce winds all the way. He asked what was wrong, and the salesman explained that his cattle were dangerously close to tipping over. "Oh, don't worry about that," the farmer replied nonchalantly. "That's how I get lean beef."
