Found this quote in 'Keeping a Family Cow' by Joann S. Grohman...

"A young fellow wantin' a start in life just needs three things: a piece of land, a cow and a wife. And he don't strictly need that last."

Just kidding, but a cow is indeed a generous creature...

"With my cow, I am able to serve exceptionally fine food and I am not stingy with the butter and cream. My cow supports my chickens so I always have eggs. She also gives us a calf so there is no meat shortage. Her extra skim milk supports a pig so there is no bacon and sausage shortage. And she provides fertilizer for the garden so there is no vegetable shortage. The cow is a generous animal. She improves life for everybody."
