Guard Your Cows… The Aliens Are Coming!

Alien Warning Sign

I have officially found the coolest website of all time. The California Milk Processor Board, the Got Milk people, has launched cowabduction.com – The official site tracking the alien abduction of dairy cows around the globe. Site features are numerous, including video of victims’ herdowners, pictures of the missing and exploited cows, tips and tricks to ward off the alien abducters, and frequently asked questions about the aliens and the missing cows. There is also a feature where you can warn your friends and neighbors of the dangers of cow abduction. The site is fun, fun, and really really fun. Check it out, and let me know your favorite part.

  1. Cow Insemination Project

    Hello, my name is Sara Rosen and I am a Peace Corps Volunteer serving in Mali, West Africa. I work primarily with a dairy cooperative here that started in January of 2007. They are doing well, and are pretty successful, but have some hangups when it comes to the supply of milk they receive each day to transform into drinkable milk and yogurt. We are currently trying to raise funds to see a small scale cow insemination project happen. We would like to inseminate 75 cows with sperm from French or Dutch cows in order to produce hybrid offspring that will supply more milk each day.

    We already have the community contribution for the project but are having a hard time finding the outside funding. Are there any groups you know of in the States that support these kinds of international projects? Does the DCHA? Any help that you can provide would be very helpful and I would appreciate it. A brief description of the project is as follows:

    “Increased Milk Production

    Due to the breed of cows in Mali, their output of milk is low. With the insemination of these cows with sperm from French or Dutch cows and therefore hybrid offspring, milk production will at least double. The increased production will allow greater income generation to befall the dairy co-op but will more importantly ensure the supply of dairy products to the community that demands them. The dairy co-op has been very forward thinking with its project ideas thus far and knows how to expand their business and satisfy the community. Money for the large scale insemination is the only thing holding them back. The dairy co-op is asking for 76 cows to be inseminated and has the capacity to pay for 20 of those. It asks for funding for the remaining 56.

    With the help of funding from the American public, the co-op can continue its business and continue its business and continue to provide dairy products at low prices for all to afford them, not only these financially stable. It is their desire and hope to be a successful co-op in the region and sustain themselves for years to come. Without an increase in raw milk to transform into the products it offers it will not be able to stay in business to see the next several years. ”

    Thank you in advance for your help.
