Picture of How to make a Cow Pie
Also known as cow dung, or feces, Cow Pies are the multi functional waste products produced by cows. Some of their many uses include:

  • Flying saucer
  • Cooking fuel (for cookies!)
  • Manure
  • Disgusting your friends and family

In my entry to the pie contest, I'm going to teach you how to bake your very own Cow Pies!

Step 3: Bake

Wait a day or two, while the cow bakes the grass and water in it's oven. Some cows like to be sung to. While they do like Old McDonald Had a Farm, I think that they much prefer Vanilla Ice songs.

Step 4: Allow it to cool

Once the cow take the pie out of the oven, it will probably be hot and wet. Allow it to cool off and harden before using it. Voila' you've got your very own cow pie! Because cows don't like to be thrown away, you've got to either start a pie factory, or sell her.

Cow pie has high calories and will burn very hot.It can be used as a replacement for coal or firewood.

Weissensteinburg (author)  LinuxH4x0r7 years ago
Oh shoot! I guess you could use it to make cookies, though.
Not sure if I'd want to eat stuff cooked over it. :P

Is there any cow tipping involved?
Weissensteinburg (author)  caitlinsdad7 years ago
Only for mixing purposes...but then you have to help them back up.
It must be awful when they are backed up...

On step three, cows happen to have seven ovens in one.
Weissensteinburg (author)  Steamdnt7 years ago
That's for maximum production.
you can also take them when they are dry and throw them. I used to have a dog that would collect everything, bottles from the side of the road, newspapers (other peoples), and cow pies from the neighbors field. so we always had cow pies in our yard.
Weissensteinburg (author)  thematthatter7 years ago
"you can also take them when they are dry and throw them." Look at the first of possible uses.
Which end do you insert the grass and water into? I got stuck at this step.
Weissensteinburg (author)  General Bison7 years ago
If you look at step 3, there is a diagram of a cow. Insert the grass into the "intake" tube.
Thanks, I was wondering where I went wrong. I'm going to wash my hands.
HAHAH you beat me to it ahh well :D ahha this was really funny
