long ears and hump back


1 May 1942, Brazil
Zebu: 2nd Agriculture and Cattle Show

This stamp celebrated a cattle exhibition. This virtuous looking bull (or cow?) was introduced from India, because those long eared species have more resistance to heat.

76 years on since this stamp, Brazil had the world largest population of cattle in 2018 ( almost the same as the human population ), and soy production to feed livestock there and to export has been expanding greatly in the last 2 years, causing deforestation on a massive scale.
