While Al Gore fiddles...

His nonsensical ditty of climactic armageddon... bio-diversity burns...
Official estimates say there are about three million Ankole cattle in Uganda and smaller populations in bordering nations. An unknown — though by all accounts large — percentage of them are in the process of being turned into something else.
And it ain't gonna take thousands of years either.
After one cross with a Holstein, the brown Ankole cow will produce a black calf with darkened horns. After two, the horns will shrink and a dappled coat will appear.

The third generation will basically look like American dairy cattle.
