Is it Myanmar? Do the Myanmar population eat meat?
City dwellers have less concerns about consuming cattle than their peasant colleagues. Similarly, ethnical minority groups (e.g. the Shan and Kachin) eat less meat than Chinese and Chinese. Moslems and Christians eat bovine meat more than Buddhists and Hindus. Cattle in Myanmar are valued as pack animals especially in the countryside because of their importance for farming.
There is even within my own household the acceptability of the meat of beef as a foodstuff spread across the municipal and agricultural line. The country's meat is not as widespread as pig meat, poultry or seafood. Consuming bovine meat was banned in pre-colonial time. In the Konbaung period, regular intake of meat was a criminal offence. Meat and veal became more and more important during the period of UK domination.
In 1885 the powerful Ledi Sayadaw wrote a well-known epistle, Nwa Myittaza (?????????????), admonishing Buddhist not to eat or slay cows.
