There is nothing very exciting about my story. I was brought up well enough by some poor owners who could not afford to maintain me after I reached nine months of age. They heard of Care for Cows and begged the cowherd men there to accept me. Since stray bulls are the prime target for slaughterhouse agents, Care for Cows took me in and are providing for my every need. I am strong, healthy, and grateful and will gladly work when I am old enough.







One farmer says to me, 'You cannot live on vegetable food solely, for it furnishes nothing to make the bones with;' and so he religiously devotes a part of his day to supplying himself with the raw material of bones; walking all the while he talks behind his oxen, which, with vegetable-made bones, jerk him and his lumbering plow along in spite of every obstacle.
