Indraneela like all the other cows in the ISCOWP herd spends a lot of time eating hay in the winter. Even though he lives in central Florida, there is not enough grass to eat in winter, and his diet has to be supplemented with hay. He also eats leaves off of bushes in the woods. This winter some of his adopters came to visit him, and he had a change of pace from his usual routine. Watch the suggested video at the end of this video and see how Indra was when he was first rescued from the auction barn.
Training Oxen by Voice Commands Lesson 4 The Lash video is now available.

ISCOWP’s primary concern is to present alternatives to agricultural and dietary practices that support and depend upon the meat and dairy industries’ slaughter of innocent animals, specifically the cow. To this end, ISCOWP presents the philosophy and implementation of compassionate cow protection. Diet change to a vegetarian/vegan diet and training oxen to enable their useful abilities are crucial to establishing cow protection.The tenets of cow protection are universal and nonsectarian, available to all regardless of race, creed, or nationality.
