    Default cows for farming

    Can you please give comments about the following sentence?

    Cows were needed for farming and pigs were expensive, so people started eating dog meat which lived near their houses and cheap as a main source or protain.

    As is, it reads, dog meat lived near the people's houses.

    Ex: Since cows were needed for farming, and pigs were expensive, people felt they had no other choice but to eat dog meat. The meat was a source of protein, and it was cheap--it came from dogs that lived nearby.
