He does not give milk, he does not lay eggs, he is too weak to pull the plough, he cannot run fast enough to catch rabbits.

他不产牛奶,也不下蛋,他虚弱到拉不动耕犁,他跑得够慢,捕不了兔子。

Yet he is lord of all the animals.

 但是他是所有其他动物的上帝。

He sets them to work, he gives back to them the bare minimum that will prevent them from starving, and the rest he keeps for himself.

 他安排动物们去劳作,攫取大部分的劳动果实,因担心动物们会被饿死才分给它们最最少的食物。

Our labour tills the soil, our dung fertilises it, and yet there is not one of us that owns more than his bare skin。

我们用劳力耕作土壤,用粪便肥沃土壤,但是所有的我们除了孑然一身,再也别无它物。

You cows that I see before me, how many thousands of gallons of milk have you given during this last year?

在我前面的牛,去年你们提供了多少以千加仑计算的牛奶呢?

And what has happened to that milk which should have been breeding up sturdy calves? 

并且那些本该用于哺育强壮牛犊的牛奶都去哪儿了?

Every drop of it has gone down the throats of our enemies.

每一滴都溜进了我们敌人的喉咙。 

And you hens, how many eggs have you laid in this last year, and how many of those eggs ever hatched into chickens? 

鸡们,你们去年下了多少蛋?而有多少蛋是孵出了小鸡呢?

The rest have all gone to market to bring in money for Jones and his men.

其他的蛋全部都被送进超市,为琼斯和他一样的人类赚钱。
