Throwback Thursday - Sending Heifers Overseas

When Heifer International was founded in 1944, Dan West and his fellow brethren started sending heifers overseas for war relief efforts. Seagoing cowboys would volunteer to help transport the animals! Heifer Int'l has now started purchasing the livestock within the local country, which helps funnel money back into the local economy where the animals are purchased. According to this advertisement in 1946, the cost of purchasing a heifer and sending it overseas was $160. Now a Heifer can be purchased within the country for $500.

North Livermore Baptist hosts VBS 'Cowabunga Farm'

I was especially touched by Chelsea’s mention of her grandmother’s gift of animals through Heifer International in her grandchildren’s name and of the story of Beatrice’s Goat. I obtained a copy of Beatrice’s Goat and fell in love with the story and wanted to promote its cause during our upcoming Vacation Bible School...
