Sustainable meat farming via lycanthropic transformation

Were cows, essentially.

Once science has figured out how werewolves transform, we can use that technology to create werecattle farms by implanting mice with the modified were-gene tuned to create cows (totally not magic, honest). Farmers will have to act quickly come the full moon, as the herds of rodents transform into werecows, ready for slaughter. Beef prices should drop enormously.

       Yes I had concerns about that. More research is needed.

       // mice ... tuned to create cows //   

       Humans and wolves have comparable body masses, wolves about 50kg, humans 60kg and up. Small human = large wolf.   

       Mice have a mass of about 20g.   

       Those ribeye steaks aren't exactly going to be overwhelming ...

       Are there health implications for consuming the transformed flesh?

       // health implications for consuming the transformed flesh? //   

       There is a lack of data in that area. Clearly, more research is needed. This will have to be funded by lavish grants of public money, and include prolonged fact-finding trips to a wide variety of locations, such as the Seychelles, the Bahamas, Bali, Switzerland (for the skiing), and numerous other jurisdictions having generous tax codes, rigorous rules on disclosure, and if possible a refreshing absence of extradition treaties.

       //a refreshing absence of extradition treaties//   

       You can say that, but I suggest that you talk to Sturton before you say "a refreshing absence of extradition treaties". He has been extradited from countries that couldn't even spell "extradited". Brazil, Puerto Rico and the Netherlands extradited him even though he wasn't there.   

       Gibraltar extradited him to the UK, despite the fact that (a) he was in Ontario and (b) Gibraltar is part of the UK.

       How do we know that mice who have become cows wouldn't keep the same mass and just turn into floaty cow-things with no additional nutritional value?
