Explanation

The same direction trigger provided by the colon and indeed, and the clue that some people have never even seen a live chicken or cow requires that the blank mean something like absence. None of pith, dross, surfeit, or dirge mean absence, so eliminate choices (A), (B), (C), and (D). Dearth does mean absence, so select choice (E).

Hence option E is correct!
