Cows are a hefty source of milk, meat and income — and can help launch a small business. One healthy heifer produces up to 20 glasses of protein-rich milk daily. Income from milk, yogourt, cheese, butter and beef can help pay for things like school fees, clothing, medicine and more. Best of all, a cow can breed a herd of calves over a lifetime. Gifts of livestock and agricultural products will also support programs that provide education in animal husbandry and business skills to help families increase their income over the long-term so their children can have brighter futures.
