Care of Farm Animals

Derryoober West, Co. Galway

The most useful farm animals are the cow, horse, pig, sheep and goat. Cows are always cared for very well because it’s from them we get the milk. There are a couple of ways of tying cows at night. Some people tie them with a chain around the neck and other with bails. After the person is finished milking they put a sign of the cross on the side of the cow with the milk froth for luck.
