Milk prices in Japan are rising, and I can’t even find butter at my local grocery store. It seems that crops are being used for biofuel instead of food for cows and there isn’t excess for making butter. I guess in addition to planting tomatoes and basil in my garden, I should buy a cow.
My speckled heifer will give me her milk,
and her female calf before her.
Ho my heifer! heifer! heifer!
Ho my heifer! kindly, calm,
My heifer gentle, gentle, beloved,
Thou art the love of thy mother.
–from a Gaelic Milking Song, translated from the gaelic.
