It’s summer and always a time for visitors who want to learn about cow protection. I’m not much of a social person and the meeting and greeting is not my expertise, but leave it to the cows to “brake the ice” and make everyone feel happy and in touch with nature. Check out Alexander Shenkar’s video “Madhava Visits ISCOWP” in the same article.
Rudra the dog is better after a long stay in the vet hospital. We do not hear or see coyotes nearby and owe that to the bravery of Rudra whose service is to protect the farm. Thanks to everyone who contributed to his care.
We just got back from the Chicago Rathayatra where we had a cow protection booth and met a lot of great souls!
Black currants, raspberries, gooseberries, snap peas, lettuce, carrots, kale and roses are being harvested from the cow manure, fertilized earth. Stormy weather has created power outages and more trees are down blocking our entry road as well as disturbing the fence lines. Areas in the woods are being cleared to accommodate more cows.
Thank you for all your help.

Cows “Break the Ice”
Rudra is Better
Rudra Babaji was very happy to come home after a month in the hospital. Rudra protects our gardens and cows from the groundhogs, deer, rabbits, racoons and coyotes. The injury to his leg was severe but could be fixed and cost us $3000. But now he is back chasing the rabbits and groundhogs in the garden. We haven’t heard or seen the coyotes since Rudra’s fight with them.Thank you to everyone who helped in the beginning with his care but we could still use help in fully paying the bill.
Cow Booth in Chicago
I wanted to take more pictures of the visitors to the booth but we were so busy talking to people answering questions, distributing literature and selling some cow dung patties, t-shirts, dried Bitter Melon and apples that I never did take more pictures. Thank you so much to Daytia das, president of Chicago ISKCON for inviting us, Sri Gouranga das and wife for so graciously hosting us and Induleka dasi for cooking vegan meals for us. Due to them it was possible for us to spread the word about cow protection in Chicago.
