YAK

This shaggy-haired wild ox is found in the central mountains of Asia. They are a source of meat, milk, leather, rope and cloth in Tibet, in addition to being a beast of burden.  Dried yak dung is also used as a fuel. Tibetans drink tea with rich yak butter instead of milk.

Male yaks are up to 3 times as large as the females. About 85% of yaks live in China.

Yak milk is rich, and makes excellent butter.
