(English) Cow Horns

Diverseco Investment Co Limited has been officially registered with the Ministry of livestock, Fisheries Rangelands as a dealer in collecting, transporting, cleaning, trimming, and exporting of Animal By Products (ABPs). The animal by-products in concern are horns, hooves and bones, i.e. of category 3. Collection sites are restricted to the state-owned slaughterhouses, where all operations are closely monitored by the Veterinary Department of the ministry and follow the state hygiene and health regulations.

Diverseco is specialized in Cow Horn Latin Name: BOS TAURUS

Horn consists of two different parts: an inner core of living bone and an outer covering of horn. This outer part is made of keratin (the same material as our nails and hair) and is more or less hollow except for the very tip. The outer part (Keratin) has thermoplastic properties, which mean that it can moulded by heating to create wonderful horn products.
