Your donations during this Matching Gift Challenge have helped ISCOWP in many ways one of which is to feed the ISCOWP herd. This year, in addition to the cost of hay, ISCOWP had expensive tractor repairs. The tractor is necessary to move the 800-pound hay bales. But with your help, the tractor was fixed and the hay bales were bought. Thank you!
This video shows a delivery of hay bales from our neighbor “Misty Morning Hounds.” Not only do we purchase all our hay from Mac and Alexis (owners of Misty Morning Hounds) but they also helped feed the ISCOWP herd the 800-pound bales of hay when our tractor was inoperable. We all thank Mac and Alexis!
Once the bales of hay are in the hay barn they are then moved by Balabhadra das (ISCOWP president Wiliam E. Dove) and grandson Balaji to the feeding rings and the herd is called by them to partake of the yummy hay. The herd is in excited anticipation of the new hay. Once they start eating the hay, some of the cows fill up fast and with full stomachs, they lay down in the pasture. Due to the quality, tasty hay they are satisfied this winter season.
Together we have almost completed the Matching Gift Challenge which ends on December 31. The complete challenge ended up being a $50,000 Matching Gift Challenge with only $3000 left to collect to meet the $50,000 goal by December 31. Help us take advantage of this opportunity to complete the $50,000 challenge. Whatever you give will be doubled in value for the cows. Adopt A Cow, make a monthly pledge or a one-time donation and take a look at our gifts to you. Every donation at this time will be doubled for the cows!
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping ISCOWP provide happiness for the ISCOWP herd and education about the importance of cow protection and diet change.
