A home for buffalos in old age

文字-A A +A

When a person grows old, they can stay in a hospice center to enjoy their later years, but where can aging water buffaloes go? Lin Jia-liang, a 40-year-old farmer from Magong, Yunlin, who returned to his hometown in 2014, embarked on a journey to begin adopting and caring for old buffaloes after a serendipitous encounter. After four years of hard work to fulfill his dream, in 2022, he officially opened Yunlin's first buffalo hospice center, "Back to Tuku," saving elderly buffaloes from the fate of the slaughterhouse.

 

With the mechanization of agriculture, water buffaloes have gradually been replaced, and as they age, they become too difficult for frail elderly farmers to care for. To provide a place for more aging water buffaloes to spend their golden years, Lin Jia-liang relies on cultivating rice and selling naturally farmed rice products. Through this initiative, Lin has created a space where elderly water buffaloes can live freely and peacefully until the end of their days.

讓水牛有一個頤養天年的家

人老了可以入住安養中心安享天年,但水牛老了可以去哪裡? 雲林土庫馬光40歲青農林家良,2014年返鄉,一個偶然的機緣,開啟了收養老牛的旅程。經過4年的努力圓夢,2022年正式啟用雲林首座水牛安養中心,挽救年邁老牛被送往屠宰場的命運。

 

隨著農業機械化,水牛逐漸被取代,年邁後的水牛也因老農年歲已高而無力照顧,為讓更多年邁水牛得以安養天年,林家良靠著種植稻米,販售自然農法回鄉米,為年邁水牛營造一個可以自由生活終老的地方。
