From todays Nation:
Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn ploughs a demonstration rice-field after opening the National Buffalo and Cow Festival at Pak Chong Livestock Research and Testing Station in Nakhon Ratchasima province. The festival is part of efforts by His Majesty the King to encourage farmers to cultivate fields with buffaloes and cows. The number of buffaloes has fallen considerably in Thailand in recent years.
Any comment would be superfluous!
