  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Word Origins 66.

  • The word origin today is cash cow. Okay. Let's take a look at the note here. A

  • cash cow is a product or investment that continues to be profitable in a steady

  • way for a long long time or for long periods. By extension, it could also refer

  • to a person that is very ... that is a very dependable source of income.

  • Like for somebody. Maybe they hired that person and that person just keeps making

  • more and more and more money for them. So for that company that person could be a

  • cash cow for them. Okay. Good. So let's continue here. The origin actually does

  • come from the idea of a dairy cow. Like a real cow. A dairy cow is able to produce

  • milk nearly, nearly or almost her whole life and if she gives birth even just

  • one time, she may replace herself and chances are that she will give birth a

  • number of times not just one time. So that would be even better.

  • Therefore cows are a big , big moneymaker for farmers. A cash cow usually exceeds

  • her original investment many times over. So whatever you paid to begin with and

  • got that money back started making more more more more and more.

  • That's what then that sort of person or that thing or real cows make a lot of

  • money. So that's where we got the idea of a cash cow. All right. Anyway, we have a

  • couple of examples here. Example number one. The apartment houses she owns and

  • rents two tenants turned out to be a real cash cow for her. Because maybe she

  • has a number of them and each month she's getting income from all these

  • houses for a number of years. You know of course every now and then she has to do

  • some repairs but that more than makes up for you know, what she gets in rent. Okay.

  • Good. So let's look at number two. That

  • performer is a real cash cow for that nightclub.

  • She has continually packed in the audiences. So many audiences, many

  • people go. Maybe it's a full house every night for many years without end. So

  • she's been popular for quite some time So for, at least for that nightclub

  • she is a real cash cow for them. Okay. Good . I hope you got it. I hope it was clear. I hope

  • hope you enjoyed it. Thank you for your time.

  • Bye-bye.
