Monday's agriculture website of interest: HEIFER INTERNATIONAL

Share |
Monday's agricultural website focus is on Heifer International, a nonprofit organization based in Arkansas, that alleviates hunger, poverty, and environmental degradation through gifts of food and income producing farm animals and training. These animals provide a source of protein, such as eggs and milk, for children and generate income for families through the sale of animal products. Since 1944, Heifer International has helped over 4 million families in 125 countries become self-reliant. Each family "passes on the gift" by giving one or more of its animal's offspring to another family in need.
