ABOUT SPONSORING A COW

Our cows’ retirement fund is built into the price of Ahimsa Slaughter-free Milk, but we are a non-for-profit company and would like to put a little more aside for those rainy days. For example vets bills, or a rise in the price of hay – which has seen bad harvest for the last few years. We also guarantee that no male calves will ever be slaughtered on our watch, and we need funds to explore innovative and productive ways of working with bulls.

Transportation for our young calves and retired cows to our Welsh sanctuary is also expensive.

Ahimsa milk has really solved a problem I was having because I was struggling to become totally vegan and soya milk was no substitute in a cup of tea. The milk itself tastes so much better than supermarket milk and even has a creamy top (like milk used to have).

I’m happy to sponsor Iris the cow because I believe that if you have to use animal products then there should be no long term effects from this and I am delighted that the cows can live out a natural life once they have finished producing milk

Would you like to get something more meaningful for a child or a person who seems to have everything?

Sponsorship of an Ahimsa cow, or a calf never to reach the table makes a compassionate and unusual gift for a friend or family member. As a gift sponsor they will receive:
• Welcome pack and certificate
• Photos of their chosen cow/calf
• Cow fridge magnet
• ‘Join the family’ ahimsa stickers
• Regular updates

We will also send them a gift card with a personal message of your choice.

I have recently begun to sponsor two cows Dora & Tilly on behalf of my Grandchildren. I felt that not only would this be a very different form of ‘Stocking filler’ gift for them at Christmas but would be a good way for them to develop an interest in animal welfare and a real understanding of how their food is produced. I was especially drawn to the ethos behind Ahimsa Dairy Foundation and by the opportunity to support such a unique (to the UK) project. One that is dedicated to the care and well-being of the animals rather than being driven by the need for ever increasing levels of production efficiency in the pursuit of ever great profit.

Please note that the SPONSOR ME buttons are only active for the first four cows below at the moment. For now please use the blue ‘Sponsor an Ahimsa Cow Now’ above to sponsor another cow.

Darlia

Darlia

My name is Darlia, which means moth. I am a quiet and peaceful cow and am three-years old. My colour is all black, although my breed is Swedish Red. I gave birth in October to my first calf.

Dora

Dora

My name is Dora and they didn’t call me after a flower, but because I like to wander about they decided I was an explorer and that rhymed with Dora. I am a six-year-old Holstein and like nothing better than tucking into a bag of fresh, organic carrots.

Draupadi

Draupadi

I am called Draupadi, after a queen in ancient Indian mythology. I am a five-year-old Holstein and have a white strip down my face. I am not really one for socialising and like to stand on my own to chew the cud.

Gautam

Gautam

My name is Gautam, which means remover of darkness, it was also the name of Buddha. I am the smallest, but the most extrovert of the young calves. I am white and rusty-brown in colour and have four white legs. I like to argue with Dharma as to who should be boss, but like him I am really quite placid.

Kamala

Kamala

My name is Kamala, which means lotus, a flower which has pride of place in Indian literature. The flower is also a favourite of the gods, which gives me a lot to live up to. I am a good natured cow and like to think I am quite beautiful.

Iris

Iris_Apr11_2

My name is Iris, after the flower. I am seven years old and am the head cow. I lead all of the others into the barn twice a day for milking. I have a white face and am a Montbeliarde, which is a French breed. My last calf was born in August 2010.

Padma

My name is Padma, a beautiful lotus hued flower. I am blind in one eye and also white and coffee coloured. My face is white as are my legs and my back is brown with a few white patches along my spine. I like to play with my age-mates and usually stand between them out in the fields.

Dharma

Dharma_2

My name is Dharma, which is a Vedic word meaning the spiritual teaching. I am the biggest among the new arrivals and am white and coffee-coloured. I have a patch over one of my eyes, white socks and a brown patch around my tummy that looks like a saddle. I am told that when I get older I am going to plough the land with my brothers.
