Did You Know... 1964 the Canadian government began a series of experiments on goats meant to produce fortified milk that would counter the effects of radiation in the event of a nuclear war with the Soviet Union. As a result of the experiments 12 so-called "Red Billies" were sent to the provinces and territories to provide protection for the premiers, their cabinets, family members and senior bureaucrats? The last Red Billy died in 1972.
