For those of you trapped in frigid climes, here is a vision of spring to look forward to: Happy CowsCows spend most of their lives bearing calves and giving milk. When their milk capacity ceases the cows are of no use. They are too expensive and are disposed of. 25 cows from Overath near Cologne were sharing the same fate.
"Last year we heard that the cows were to be taken to the slaughterhouse because the farmer couldn't carry on with the milk production for financial reasons. We see the cows every day and couldn't bear the thought of them being killed. This is why we started this... this foundation."
"I simply love cows, they are such gentle animals. I became sad to hear from my father that he wanted to give up holding the cows. Now I'm happy that the cows can stay and grow old here."
