Any farmer, she said, knows the value and impact a cow can have.“It is a food-and-income producing animal and in the developing world, cows are saving lives. Our Irish dairy cows produce 16 to 20 litres of milk per day, whereas in Rwanda, the local, indigenous cow will yield just one litre of milk per day.“After they have consumed what they need themselves in their family, our recipient farmers can sell leftover milk at their local market and earn a small income,” Ms Ryan explained.The Irish dairy cows will be sent to Rusizi in Western Rwanda where they will be gifted to impoverished families who are currently in training and making the necessary preparations to receive their animal.For further information or to send an Irish dairy cow to Rwanda phone 1850 82 99 99 or visit www.bothar.org.
