This month we are purchasing hay for the cows’ winter feed. We figure we will spend $8, 500. We know this hay is good as we bought it last year and the cows loved it. Besides that there was no waste, no hay left lying on the ground. A gift of $250 will feed the ISCOWP herd of 21 cows for one week. Any and all donations will help and are gratefully appreciated.
The Matching Gift Challenge is now in full swing until December 31 and your gift will be matched, doubled in value for the cows.
Beginning from the middle of October and the following 4 weeks is a very auspicious time. Lord Krsna is worshiped as a beautiful, all attractive little boy by offering candles morning and evening to him and praying for the blessings of spiritual joy. During such an auspicious time acts of mercy and compassion have even more potency. Even if you are not a devotee of Lord Krsna, the act of feeding another soul is a merciful, compassionate act that brings goodness to the world.
Donations that are given during this 4 week period will go towards the cows’ hay unless otherwise designated by you the donor.
Please help us feed the cows. You can feed the cows here. Remember your gift is matched. So a $10 gift becomes $20, a $100 gift becomes $200, a $250 gift becomes $500 and a $1000 gift becomes $2000!
Thank you so much! We are so grateful for your support.

Visitors to ISCOWP Farm
On a recent visit to the ISCOWP farm, HH Bhakti Ragava Swami, head of the Om Sri Surabhi International Campaign, is putting cow dung on his phone after a discussion about the latest news of certain cell phones catching on fire.
From the Times of India March 2011
TOI spoke to associate professor in physics department, KN Uttam, about the nuclear radiation and ways to prevent it. He said some traditional Indian practices can help in minimising the effects of Gamma rays, the most harmful rays emitted in nuclear radiation.
“Traditional methods like keeping onions in pockets and applying a layer of Cow Dung on the outside walls of houses absorb the harmful gamma rays,” Uttam said. “Cow dung, in fact, can absorb all the three rays — alpha, beta and gamma. Among these, alpha rays cannot penetrate the layers of cloths whereas beta falls after hitting the same but the Gamma rays penetrate the body tissue and is the most harmful,” he added. If the outer walls of houses are coated with thick layers of cow dung, it will absorb the gamma rays and in turn people would be safe, said Uttam who has worked in the ministry of science and technology and MHRD.
