Animals were not just used for meat, but dairy products from these cattle were utilized and the animals were domesticated. The dairy products were said to have turned ‘uncultivated grasslands’ in to sustenance. People were gaining both value and health from the cow, whilst also prolonging the animals life.
Also not only cows produce milk, but a wide range of animals do.
Here is a list of the known animals that produce milk:
- Water buffalo
- And even in Russia and Sweden, some Moose dairy products exist.
