Water Buffalo for Milk & Income

Gives 1 water buffalo
Gift Description:
This gift provides a family with training and one water buffalo. Water buffalo are prized for their nutrient-rich dairy and strength for farming. There are at least 130 million domestic water buffalo in the world; most are raised on small farms, where they are often the greatest capital asset of their owners. Able to survive in harsh environments, the water buffalo provides meat, milk and labor, helping farmers plow difficult terrain. They are by far the most efficient and economic means of cultivating small fields. The milk they produce is richer in fat and protein than that produced by dairy cattle, and water buffalo also have a longer productive life span, usually 20 years.
