Puzzle #1: How many cows?

A man had 25 cows. Each cow was given a number from 1 to 25.

Each cow gives certain amount of milk everyday. The amount is same as the number the cow has.

Number 1 cow gives 1 liter, Number 2 gives 2 liter ….. and number 25 cow gives 25 liter.

That man had five sons and he had to give away his cows to these five sons.

Since he wanted to stay unbiased, he wished to distribute cows in a way that each son has 5 cows. And each son should be getting same amount of milk as other sons.

You need to help this man by telling how will you distribute the cows?
