In Malaysia they’re hoping to relax beef cattle with verses from a book soaked in blood. “As soon as they’re transported elsewhere they become irrational and difficult to handle.” Yes, because they know what’s coming. The Koran won’t change that.
KOTA BHARU: The Kelantan government has taken an unconventional step by encouraging 19,000 cow rearers in the state to expose their breed to audio recordings of Quranic verses in the belief that this will produce good quality beef.
State Agriculture, Agro-Based Industry, Green Technology and Biotechnology Committee chairman Che Abdullah Mat Nawi said this technique is expected to calm down the livestock, making the cows feel soothed and relaxed and produce better quality beef.
A company producing Naim Beef will undertake this programme, which is expected to produce quality beef on par to the famed Kobe beef of Japan, he said.
“Kelantan produces the second best beef quality in the country; when these cows are bred here they are very disciplined and listen to the cow herders.
“The only problem is as soon as they are transported elsewhere they become irrational and difficult to handle. That is why we are trying to groom the cows to be tame,” he told reporters at the launching of the Kelantan Biotechnology symposium here yesterday.
