In the  lectures  given  in  Dornach  in  Autumn  1923  (Man  as  Symphony  of  the  Creative  Word),  Rudolf  Steiner  pointed  to  the  special  nature  of  the  cow  as  the  animal  which  embodies  the  mysteries  of  the  digestive  process  in  an  archetypal  way.  In the  Agriculture  Course,  he  described  the  growth  of  plant  life  on  the  surface  of  the  Earth  as  a  higher  form  of  digestion  within  Nature.  Both these  considerations  may  help  to  explain  the  following.

The quadruple stomach of the cow is the site of the most comprehensive cosmic alchemy on Earth.  A cow’s blood is the carrier of its cosmic individuality, its cowness (The Group Soul).  By including some blood in the preparation we appeal to this high spiritual being for  its  powerful  support.  In using    the contents of the cow’s stomach, we  facilitate  the  continuation  of  the  process  of  disenchantment  of  the  elementals  which  had  already  begun  with  digestion  –  in  particular  of  those  elementals  which  had  previously  been  enchanted  into  the  growth  processes  of  the  fodder  plants.  The stimulus given thereby to these  processes  also  produces  an  enlivening  of  and  support  for  the  re-enchantment  of  the  elementals  into  the  small  creatures  which  inhabits  the  compost  heaps  (which  are  treated  with  the  preparation),  or  the  cultivated  earth  on  which  it  is  sprayed.  The essential aim of this preparation  is  the  stimulation  of  the  desired  processes  and  support  which  this  gives  to  the  request  for  help  from  the  four  groups  of  “very useful” elementals.
