Cow Tips

We did it - another animal session in the countryside, just as I had promised in a previous post. Last week was pigs, yesterday was cows. We had a small group of 7 village bank members that gathered round in the same, dark living room with listening ears and curious faces. We set up the projector and had "movie" time again. These women have been raising animals for practically their whole life, so they know a thing or two. But, as Esperanza said, "Sometimes you just aren't sure if you are raising your animals the best way and we don't have anyone to ask. This was good because we got to ask questions about our cows." They learned some hygiene and nutrition tips, along with recommendations to control disease. I learned a thing or two, too.
