People across the country have been donating to the Red Cross in order to help relief efforts in Haiti. However, one donation from the land of farm equipment and livestock was particularly mooooving.

A North Dakota ranch donated five heifers in order to help raise money for relief efforts put forward by the Red Cross in Haiti. According to Aberdeen, South Dakota's American News, Dennis Knudsen gave the cows, which brought in almost $5,000 for the Red Cross International Response Fund.

"They've got to have water and food and medicine," Knudsen told the paper.

The Red Cross has said that money donated is being used in a variety of ways, including providing food and clean drinking water to the people of Haiti. Funds are also going toward providing shelter items, including blankets and tents.

So far, more than $67 million has been spent or earmarked for the Red Cross' efforts in the country. Along with supplies, Red Cross volunteers have been sent to the nation as well.
