I enjoyed your article regarding ice creams from local farms ("Cream of the crop," June 27). The only thing that turned me off was the third cow from the left in your picture, which looked like a "downed" cow. But I'm assuming it was not, since the barn looks very clean and the other cows look well cared for.

Please do more articles and interest stories on vegetarian restaurants, organic farmer's markets, organic farms and compassion for animals' welfare.
