#981.
That's all is to it. No real name, no real love, no real life. All for one thing.

This story shows the life of a young cow growing up to be raised for beef. From boiling hot travels to freezing cold, #981 is shipped around America. He gets severely hurt and is sent off to "Tasty N Tender Meat" factory, where his injury is seen as a good thing, more tender the beef.
While in Florida's horrific factory, #981 meets a friend. Day and night they enjoy eachothers company, and grow very close to eachother. Until her day for slaughter comes. Of course, they don't realize it. She is taken away and #981 can do nothing about it, as he is chained up. All he hears is the screams of each cow as their turn comes.

#981 learns many lessons. His deceased mother visits him in dreams and tells him confusing things. Traumatized and afraid, #981 has an extremely sad, but moving life.

I really enjoyed what I've read so far. You're a good writer, although you could spend a little more time on grammar and spelling. The story is very touching and also a bit... Scary.
This is why you shouldn't buy meat from these types of businesses.
Anyways, keep on writing, my friend! Keep on writing...

This was powerful! It has the feel of a Nazi concentration camp, but that's not a bad thing considering what you're writing about. There were some minor errors, but nothing that distracts the reader. Just so you know, you have ; in place of ' and at one point you wrote "vhoose" instead of "choose". Those were the only ones that really stuck out. But this was really good. Please post more!

I really love this story. Before I didn't have much sympathy for cattle, but this story makes it very real, and sad, and the cow's feelings are so vivid. Interesting story choice, to write about a beef cow.
But I shall never eat another hamburger again without thinking of the terrible sacrifice of the cows. I am deeply touched, however I shall enjoy my burger just as much as usual.
