Cooking for Cows

 

Every afternoon the cowherd men prepare a 200-liter pot of porridge for the residents of Care for Cows. The porridge consists of cracked wheat, chick pea husks, barley flour and salt cooked on a cow dung fire. During the winter months sugar cane molasses is added to help the herd ward off the cold. Serving the porridge has become the highlight of the day. Here you can see how the oxen watch with great anticipation, knowing they will get their share in the morning.






I have from an early age abjured the use of meat, and the time will come when men such as I will look upon the murder of animals as they now look upon the murder of men.
