  1.  Pai cow is Orangutani cows of South Australia that's widely known for its quality meat and milk. It is said to have originated from the Great Barrier Reef of South Australia. It's considered as a symbol of resilience, very good fortune, fertility and luck and many believe it to be the strongest animal they could own. Now, the Pai cow is raised for milk and meat in Australia. While there are lots of different types of the Australian cattle breed, they all have one thing in common: Their meat is great!
  2.  The best time to produce this white-colored milk is during summer and spring. And though other kinds of cows produce less than it, this variety still ranks very high. In terms of the quality of the milk, it is just like the quality of the meat. It's excellent vitamins, minerals, enzymes and hormones.
  3.  So how does this South Australian superhero come to be on the market? https://www.gamespot.com/profile/claveocelot2/about-me/ There are many theories behind this. One theory is that the Pai cow was developed by accident. Before attempting to market it as a brand, ranchers discovered it sick and abandoned it in a field, but as it healed, it started to produce good milk which led to this famous South Australian brand.
  4.  But one thing is apparent - No legitimate farmer would raise a sick cow. It is said that the dairy industry in Australia is worth AUS 10 billion (USD 7 million) annually. This makes milk a very lucrative product and makes merit the primary reason farmers market it to consumers.
  5.  The major selling point of merit milk is the consistency of its quality. Milk produced by this variety has a higher percentage of whey protein. That's why it's also used in cooking. Consider adding some cream or yoghurt in addition to its smoothie or milkshake.
  6.  In terms of the origins of this rare breed, there are some theories out there. Some say it came from Mongolia. Some say it had been brought by the Chinese during gambling. And there is the other concept that the Pai is actually a Bornean black cow or an ancestor of the Asian Greyhound. No matter what the history, how these cows are protected by the Australian government makes it a prime breeding source.
  7.  So where can you purchase Pai beef? The best place to go is from a specialist online retailer. They generally have better tasting beef and have much fresher products than many local retailers. If you're lucky, you will come across a few ranchers selling their old Bornean stock online. However, if not, there are plenty of reliable wholesalers online who stock the whole variety of Pai products.
  8.  Whether you want beef, veal, lamb or goat, you can't go wrong with a piece of this unique Australian animal. Their meat is considered healthy and their horns are used for body parts in Oriental medicine. But most importantly, the purity of the beef and the way it's organically farmed means that the beef is as pure and free of any genetically modified elements as possible.
  9.  While it's certainly not technically grass fed (the cows are simply fed grass), some producers claim to be. So the question is if that really matters. On one hand, many customers may prefer beef that is more naturally organic. On the other, the label'grass fed' is currently largely meaningless. There is no official definition for grass-fed cattle and the vast majority of meat inspectors don't check for this anyway.
  10.  The price is hard to pin down. Prices tend to vary between one to two thousand Australian dollars per cow. The higher costs are attributed to the quality of the cattle and the fact they have usually been fed a mixture of grains and organic feed. Naturally, it's hard to say whether or not this will change in the future but as with all beef the pricing will continue to fluctuate based on factors like the general market trend for beef.
  11.  So what do you need to consider these beef cows? The best option is to start off buying from an independent farmer. Not only will you get more for your money, you'll also avoid being influenced by cowboys seeking to make a fast buck.
