The MOOseum

Enough "Mad Cow" panic -- let's hear from our trusted food provider, the American cattleman. This interactive museum opened in 1995, promoted as "Alabama's only children's educational MOOseum devoted to the history and preservation of the beef cattle industry,"

"Meet Adam Bainbridge, a one-of-a-kind cattleman. As the official spokesman for the AL Cattlemen's Association, he's your guide to the Mooseum's galleries." Adam is an animatronic, we think. Find out how many everyday products contain cow. See a 21st century cattle operation. Welcome to Slim Buckaroo's Cattle Club. Billed as a "Children's Educational Center," but obviously promoting a lobbyist's view of Beef -- it's what's for dinner. You can buy items with that very slogan in the Mooseum gift shop.
