Is there a green-rancher's apostrophe?


Oh, for crying out loud ...

Impressively alert Anna earns Mr. Rewrite's admiration for sharing this farming fiasco. It expands the so-called greengrocer's apostrophe (e.g. orange's, apple's) into the realm of livestock. Thanks.

Repeat after Mr. Rewrite: Don't create plurals with apostrophes except when dealing with abbreviations that have two or more internal periods (e.g. Ph.D.'s), per AP style.
