Animal Delivery

Our group worked in conjunction with Heifer Project, now know as Heifer International.

I was envolved in the receiving, quarentine, and distribution of donated animals from the U.S.

This afforded me the opportunity to see many villages and individuals in two major parts of Bolivia.

This photo shows me (in the western hat) and a group of men who have just received purebred sheep.  This was in early 1965 or late 1964 near Torolapa, Cochabamba.

There was no local supply of pruebred breeding stock and Heifer was very instrumental in bolsterin the availability of such stock to the benefit of small farmers and ulitmately the entire county.
