Dairy farmers and shepherds in the North have noticed a 10 percent rise in milk production among their herds and flocks since the end of fighting, the Israel Dairy Board said Wednesday. Beyond the 90 cows killed by Hizbullah rockets, "it appears that the fighting period harmed the cows not only physically, but also emotionally," the board said, attributing the livestock's wartime "stress, pressure and tension" to the noise of the rockets and mortars. The dairy farmers also concluded that rocket-safe structures should be constructed for the workers, who milked the cows under fire.
