Cash cow?

Two cows

Cash cow? So, how much *is* a calf worth?

A motorist driving by a ranch hit and killed a calf that was crossing the road. The driver went to the owner of the calf and explained what had happened. He then asked what the animal was worth.

‘€œOh, about $200 today,’€ said the rancher. ‘€œBut in six years it would have been worth $900. So $900 is what I’€™m out.’€

The motorist sat down and wrote out a check and handed it to the farmer.

‘€œHere,’€ he said, ‘€œis the check for $900. It’€™s postdated six years from now.’€
