Cambodian Cow Cebú

Cambodian Cow

The cattle in Cambodia are different than those found in America.  They are quite large, and most are very skinny.  They are related to the Indian Zebu (Bos primigenius indicus).  They don’t make very good steaks…and Cambodian’s don’t really drink milk.  So they are mainly used to work the fields.  I took this shot about an hour outside of Phnom Penh after we had worked on building a fence on some new church property.  If you’ve ever listened to “Silly Songs with Larry” this is the “cebú” he sings about.
