To increase milk production on his debt-ridden farm, Porky Pig's Poppa purchases a "creamlined" mechanical cow. This technological advance may spell doom for Porky's pet cow Old Bessie, who will be ground into meat patties unless she can keep up with her robot counterpart. The final decision rests upon the results of a contest between Bessie and the mechanized "bossie", which yields surprising results. Highlights include the opening rendition of "Old MacDonald" (with new lyrics), an impromptu showcase of "designer" cheeses, and a verbal gag stolen from The March of Time.
