Question: Dear Kryon: I live in Spain. I am sorry if I will ask you a question you might have already answered, but the translations of your books are very slow and I might not have gathered all information you have already given. I am quite concerned about abandoned animals. It seems that many people buy animals for their children and as soon as they grow, they set them out somewhere. Recently I had the occasion to see a small kitten in the middle of the street. I did not immediately react, since I could have stopped and taken it, without getting out of the car. So, I went on and at the first occasion I could turn, I went back to see if I could take the kitten, but it was to late, somebody had already killed it. This happened some month ago, but I still feel very sorry for that kitten. I just would like to know, what kind of entity are these animals and how does this fit in our world. Are these entities which choose this kind of life, like we do choose our kind of Human life? I see so many abandoned animals and every time I see one, my heart aches... I would like to know more about them.

Answer: Dear one, indeed the answer has been given, but let us give it again so you all understand. Animals are here on earth for three (3) reasons.

(1) The balance of biological life. . . the circle of energy that is needed for you to exist in what you call "nature."

(2) To be harvested. Yes, it's true. Many exist for your sustenance, and this is appropriate. It is a harmony between Human and animal, and always has. Remember the buffalo that willingly came into the indigenous tribes to be sacrificed when called? These are stories that you should examine again. The inappropriateness of today's culture is how these precious creatures are treated. Did you know that if there was an honoring ceremony at their death, they would nourish you better? Did you know that there is ceremony that could benefit all of humanity in this way. Perhaps it's time you saw it.

(3) To be loved and to love. For many cultures, animals serve as surrogate children, loved and taken care of. It gives Humans a chance to show compassion when they need it, and to have unconditional love when they need it. This is extremely important to many, and provides balance and centering for many.

Do animals know all this? At a basic level, they do. Not in the way you "know," but in a cellular awareness they understand that they are here in service to planet earth. If you honor them in all three instances, then balance will be the result. Your feelings about their treatment is important. Temper your reactions with the spiritual logic of their appropriateness and their service to humanity. Honor them in all three cases.

Due to increasing demand for fresh milk in Asia, fresh milk producer Greenfield has imported 360 pregnant cows from Australia to improve its production capacity. 

Greenfield processing manager Darmanto told The Jakarta Post here over the weekend his company, which had allocated Rp 108 billion (US$9.55 million) for the import program, would soon make a second import of the same number. 

With the pregnancies at up to six months, the number of the company's cows able to produce 26 liters each per day will double in the next three months, he said, adding the new cows would arrive at Juanda International Airport in a chartered cargo aircraft Tuesday. 

The increase in the number of cows is expected to boost the company's capacity to up to 150 tons of fresh milk per day, plus the 70 tons of fresh milk per day supplied by the Sekar Tanjung Milk Cooperatives (PKIS). 

"We are waiting for two to three months for when the new cows have their calves," Darmanto said. 

He said his company supplied fresh milk to Cambodia, Hong Kong, the Philippines, Singapore and Vietnam and had yet to meet the demand for an additional 20 tons per day from Hong Kong and the Philippines. 

"With the new cows, we will be able to meet the additional demand in a few months," he said, adding a part of the company's production was also supplied to milk factory PT Nestle. 

Darmanto said his company decided to import the cows because the quality of local cows' milk did not meet the export standard. 

Separately, head of the East Java Veterinary Agency Sigit Hanggono called on milk powder producers such as PT Nestle, PT Frisian Flag Indonesia and Indomilk to follow PT Greenfield's lead and develop their own ranches to meet the increasing demand both at home and overseas. 

He said the government would support the cow imports to improve the country's milk production and exports.
