If you have been following this blog, you most likely noticed a heavy prevalence of cow themed writings and pictures. Hopefully, you have enjoyed these posts. Now, I will list four factoids explaining why it appears that I have become deeply obsessed with cows.
- My soum is the largest soum in Tov Province with 7,000 residents and 20,000 cows.
- Because we are so close to Ulaanbaatar, nomadic herding is difficult. Sheep and goats need large amounts of land to live off of… but not cows!
- Batsumber’s herdsmen sell their cow milk by loading it into a giant milk tank, closely resembling a gasoline tank, welded to a truck bed.
- Batsumber’s cows are more expensive than other Mongolians cows… because they’re just that awesome.
