A number of intrepid Chinese entrepreneurs have capitalized on the myriad of scandals that have made locals afraid of buying domestically-produced milk, by bringing their livestock inside the urban sprawl to offer something more natural.
Over the weekend, a scantily-clad “milk sister” was spotted leading a cow through the streets of Beijing’s Chaoyang District, stopping to milk the cow on the sidewalk and sell the fresh milk to onlookers. She even allowed the city slickers to have a go and experience the joys of cow milking for themselves, NetEase reports.
Boxes of milk sold for 8 yuan and pretty soon demand outstripped supply. Step it up, cow!
While many eagerly drank it up, some onlookers couldn’t help but feel worried about the safety of the clearly-labeled “organic milk.”
Last year, a young entrepreneurial couple was spotted squeezing milk from four goats on a busy street in Xi’an, selling the bottles for 10 RMB a pop — with lucrative results.
Two months later, Xi’an entrepreneurs had found a new and more efficient way of giving city residents the freshest goat milk possible. The goat van.
