You Can Raise A Cow for Camp of the Cross
Here's how it works
Camp of the Cross, with money received from donors, will purchase heifers and cows that will be integrated into local rancher’s herds.
These cows will be tagged as CCM’s cows. We will own them. The feeding, housing, care, and breeding of these heifers and cows will be maintained by each rancher as their donation to the program and camp. Both the investment in a cow and the care of the cow will be a donation to CCM that will be recorded on behalf of the donors.
The outcome of this project will be two-fold. The first benefit will be the calves. They can either be sold, processed for beef for our food service program, or added back into the herd for future gain. The second half of the benefit is that Camp of the Cross is committed to helping others in need. Each year when calves are sold a portion of the proceeds will go to a local food bank or the ELCA Global Barnyard.
