Cambridge, where have all the beefs gone?

Beefs graze on the Midsummer Common in Cambridge.
Midsummer Common has provided grazing for animals since at least the 12th century. Grazing from 1st April to 30th November in each year. The word graze is related to the word "grass". In fact we are all in dept with that wonderful beefs. The grass is kept low and we can all have fun in that park close to the River Cam. They are a popular attraction - artists have been sketching them and children have been chasing after them. The problem started when I wondered where all the beefs have gone. Sadly, the tale is over. I saw on the Cambridge News the following advertising: "It has been a good summer and the cattle have done well on Midsummer Common and Grantchester Meadows. There is your chance to stock up for the winter, have some locally grass fed beef at home, whenever you want it." So, we use them and when have done their job, we eat them. You walk past these beefs and they look wonderful and then you see that you can buy their meat. It's not very nice is it?"
