Well, he DOES have the money…
Billionaire Bill Gates – according to Forbes, he’s worth $92.8 billion – is known for his philanthropy. And his latest move proves that. BIG time.
Gates has pledged to donate $40 million into creating a super cow to help end world poverty. Yep…..super cow. This is either the coolest thing ever or the plot for a sci-fi movie gone very, very wrong.
The Gates Foundation will pump the money into research for higher yielding dairy cows, as well as chickens that will lay better quality eggs, livestock vaccines and ‘supercrops’ that can withstand droughts or disease.
The move, if successful, will help farmers in need across the globe. Atta boy, Bill! ~ Jason
