Thanks to Stephen, founder of www.dairymoos.com for permissions to reproduce. His blog is very insightful source filled with informative articles on US Dairy industry. Below short post on his blog drew my attention because of one word : "Hindoo".
It is heartening to see that pioneers of the dairy industry in the USA, seven oceans apart, were well aware about the Hindu/Indian ways of life 125+ years ago. For the readers in India, W.D. Hoard referred below was an American politician, a newspaper editor, and the 16th Governor of the U.S. state of Wisconsin from 1889 to 1891. Not only Mr. Hoard was an informed human about world that was nearly not as connected as it is today. He was likely among the first few Americans who thought of cows as mothers before they become synonymous with primary meat source in the West.
