Heifer International CEO Pierre Ferrari adds “Heifer Cowboy” to his résumé

Here’s my intended “fifth Friday post” a bit late. Sorry. Enjoy!

Heifer International CEO Pierre Ferrari had the opportunity last November to see what it was like to be one of Heifer’s “flying cowboys.” Heifer made a shipment of cattle sent by air from Ireland to Romania and Pierre was on board. Pierre says of his trip,

While my traveling experience was so so much easier (on a comfortable freight Airbus 330) than the early cowboy seagoing trips, I really felt humbled and joyous to be part of that group as I tied the symbolic cowboy scarf around my neck. What inspirational work it is to be able to bring such relief and delight to struggling farmers who then turn right around and pass on the gift to other families in their communities.  And that happens quickly, as all the heifers we brought over were pregnant.

Congratulations on receiving your red scarf, Pierre!
