Don’t have a cow

December 9th, 2006

If you were thinking of sending a cow to Kenya for Christmas, then don’t (you’ve probably missed the last posting date, too).

As any of the number of South Devon farmers will tell you, keeping animals costs money. And it isn’t the most efficient way for poverty stricken regions to get food - you’ve got to grow the grass for the cow to eat it first, capisce?

Animal Aid is supporting a HIPPO initiative. A what? HIPPO - Help International Plant Protein Organisation. A what? You know, growing fruit and nuts and other energy efficient crops with a longer life. Check them out for more details.
