Cow Care 12 y
An "easy 'sensory cow meditation' (to) be done every time you milk your cow."
By farmer M in California
”I am grateful for my cows. Certainly I adore the milk, manure and meat they provide, but I am truly grateful for one particular thing. When I sit to milk my cows twice a day, their large warm energy soothes me into myself again. Twice a day they create the space for such a restorative gift.
Therefore I feel it is the least I can do to give them the care I deeply feel they deserve. I would like to share with you my daily checklist that enables me to begin to deliver such care.
I have found that the best time to check my cows is right before I ... read more

The Most Natural, Healing Food; The Food Mother Provides! 12 y
Commentary on Raw Milk by Sophia
”Why would we take milk from a nursing mother, and first smack it really hard against a wall (homoginize it) and then heat it (pasteurize it), killing what is inherently absorbable and nutritious? It seems barbaric!
We are the only species who would think to obliterate the most natural, healing food; the food Mother provides. Fear and control and isolation are powerful, deleterious forces when behind any philosophy.
Let’s embrace what Mother has to offer. Raw Love.”

”ACTION ALERT FROM THE BIODYNAMIC ASSOCIATION”
The Zinniker Family Farm of Elkhorn, Wisconsin, was established in 1943 and is considered one the oldest biodynamic farms in the United States.

Quote from "Milk: The Surprising Story Through The Ages" By Anne Mendelson
By Anne Mendelson
would have been a fascinating subject at any time in history.
It is really and truly the First Food,
at least for all members of the mammal class.
The practice of milking
was an anchor of many prehistoric civilizations,
one of humanity’s
oldest and deepest bonds with domestic animals.
The animals raised for the purpose
are remarkable creatures,
though they remain nearly invisible
to most of the people who put milk on shopping lists.
What they produce is a biochemical marvel
that modern science has not yet finished analyzing,
Its still-unp ... read more

”Great article although I need to point out one grave error. The U.S. is not a Democracy it is a Republic. We don’t say ’….and to the Democracy for which it stands…’ and the word Democracy is not anywhere in our founding documents but the Constitution Guarantees to each state a Republic, there is a difference and our founders spoke highly of a Republic and badly about the evils of Democracy.”
