HAVE A (GREEN) COW!
Have you ever tasted raw milk?
“Don’t have a cow!”

Some complain that cows cause global warming by passing too much gas, and demand they be eliminated from the human food chain. Before we herd cows out the door, however, perhaps we should consider this: The family cow can be the perfect one-stop food factory.

Through the wild fermentation of the rumen, a cow can turn the grass upon which we would starve, into a high-protein food more perfect than any food we could buy in any supermarket.  And we need not chop down any forest, divert any grain, nor fight any wars to get food from a family cow.

When the cow has aged, and no longer produces milk, we can process her into meat and fill the family’s freezer.

Bottom line:  No food comes more complete, at less cost, then the fresh, whole milk we can get from the family cow.  And though her milk may be white, the family cow can be very green!

 
Do you think cows be green?
