Gasp! But that goes against direct biblical requirements.

Deuteronomy 25:4
Thou shalt not muzzle the ox when he treadeth out the corn.

And it's reiterated in the New Testament.

1 Timothy 5:18
For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward.

Pity he got that wrong.
