“The cow is the most productive, efficient creature on earth. She will give you fresh milk, cream, butter and cheese, building health or even making you money. She will provide rich manure for your garden or land. Each year she will give you a calf to raise, or sell for beef. Every day she will enrich the quality of your life as you benefit from the resources of the natural world. Quite simply, the family that keeps a cow is a healthy family.” From Keeping a Family Cow by Joanne Grohman.
