In 2005, a
group of Caleb volunteers started a program to help the Romanians buy
livestock. Purchasing an animal not only provides food for a
Romanian family, it gives goods for the them to sell at market and the
animals are a renewable resource as the livestock bears young.
"Buying a piece of the Cow" has come to mean horses, pigs, goats,
chickens, and yes - cows! The Buy a Piece of the Cow Program is
now part of most Caleb fundraising events.
