Seagoing Cowboys Endowment

Heifer's seagoing cowboys were a vital part of Heifer's beginning, riding aboard ships to care for livestock on their voyage from the U.S. to destinations around the world. We invite you to make a gift of any amount to this endowment to celebrate the history of Heifer. Funds from the Heifer Foundation Cowboy Endowment will be utilized by Heifer International in project areas where they are most needed.
