I will show how we can and should position the cow in current American life. She has no adequate substitute. Your cow is a self-renewing source of superior food. I will demolish the currently fashionable notion that cows produce more CO2 than automobiles and pour methane into the atmosphere. We will discuss the unexpected conflation of vegan philosophy with agribusiness monoculture. I will explore the role of raw milk and colostrum in the prevention or relief of many conditions including skin disorders, obesity, C. difficile, arthritis, and the common cold.
I will describe current research on A2 milk, and the importance of raw milk for all mammalian babies. With raw milk from a pastured cow available there is no need to destroy Asian forests for coconut oil or to buy high-priced imported berries for vitamin C. Raw milk has it all. I will counter the specious arguments against milk often employed to dismiss the importance of milk in the diet. A cow is less trouble than a goat and requires less land than you may think. We will explore the pros and cons of family cows vs. goats and other dairy animals and the practical considerations involved.
