Send a Cow


We are proud of our new partnership with the African development charity – Send a Cow.



Send a Cow transforms lives in Africa…

Over 25 years Send a Cow has transformed a million lives; working hand in hand with poor families, widows and orphans, teaching them the skills they need to build new lives free from poverty and hunger.  By providing training, livestock, seeds and support, it restores hope and creates stronger communities for the future.


In turn, these beneficiaries then pass on young livestock, seeds or training to others.  And so on, and so on.  This ‘Pass it On’ principle not only builds stronger communities, it allows us to help even more people to develop skills, confidence and self respect.


Send a Cow doesn’t offer a quick fix solution to poverty and rural development.  In for the long haul, it typically works with groups of farmers for five years to effect substantial and sustainable change.  Send a Cow also acknowledges from the outset that issues such as gender equality, health and family harmony are just as vital to the success of development programmes in Africa as simple livestock provision.


So in addition to ongoing training in animal wellbeing, sustainable organic farming practices and natural resource management, its work also provides courses in subjects such as gender equality, conflict resolution, health and hygiene and HIV/Aids awareness. This balance of practical farming skills with social, life skills is a potent mix and produces remarkable results.


People are happier and healthier, children are educated, wealth is created and communities are more harmonious.

How we can all help hoof hunger out of Africa…

Dairy cows are vital to rural farming familes in Africa, through their supply of nutritious milk and fertilising manure.  £1,500 raised for Send a Cow lifts a family out of poverty for good. £650 funds a dairy cow.  This impact is life-changing.  Send a Cow has been selected as our charity to support as a company now and in the future. Its a charity which we are passionate about and  felt it fits closely with our company values.  We will be organising lots of fundraising events to help raise funds for Send a Cow.


You can help too…

When you purchase any of our chosen Send a Cow sires, you will have the opportunity to donate a suggested £1 per dose, on as many doses as you choose, and Genus ABS will match fund your donation in support of Send a Cow and its tremendous work.
