    it is common knowledge that cow and its progeny, i.e., bull, bullocks and calves are worshiped by Hindus on specified days during Diwali and many other festivals like Makr Sankranti and Gopashtmi. From ancient times cows have received special protection for religio-economic reasons. In all the Hindu dominated, or Hindu ruled, parts of India cows were protected. Gaushalas (cow shelters) were found in every city and village. The lead for conserving indigenous livestock breeds was taken by pastoral communities.

    In a drought afflicted country, the dried cow dung cakes are extremely useful as a slow-burning fuel. India's Supreme Court ruled in 1958: "Cattle in India have three fold uses: providing milk, draught purposes, providing manure for agriculture. Dung is cheaper than chemical fertilizers and extremely useful. In short, the cow and bullock are the back-bone of India."

    Another ruling by the Supreme Court in 2005 called for preserving cattle and strengthening Gaushalas because "Such organizations use the urine and dung produced by these cows to prepare Vermi-compost or any other form of bio manure and urine for preparing pest repellent. The money collected by the sale of such products is normally sufficient to allow maintenance of the cows. In some cases, the urine and dung is used to prepare the medical formulations also."

    Gaushala in TN started by Gujaratis

    Started in 1908, Madras Pinjrapole (Gujarati word for goshala) is one of the oldest and largest old age homes for cattle in the city. It was started in memory of Chathur Boojasoss Kushaldoss, a Gujarati merchant. Today, the activities are managed by a trust led by Vittaldas Jagnnathdas, vice-president, V.N. Damani, treasurer and Mahendra Parmar, secretary.

    “Our doors are always open to receive cattle, irrespective of the condition they are in. The highest number of cattle that the Pinjrapole housed is 2,600, nearly 10 years ago,” says Narendra Kumar Lodha, member of the feeding committee.

    Temples are their greatest patrons. Recently, Sri Parthasarathy Swamy Temple in Triplicane sent 40 aging cows after the temple authorities couldn’t take care of them. Marundeeswarar Temple at Thiruvanmiyur sent seven cows.

    The biggest challenge is meeting the day-to-day expenditure of keeping the cows. The generosity of donors enables the authorities to meet this challenge and keep the activities going at the goshala.

    Nearly 800 litres of milk is produced every day, which is given away to donors residing in and around the locality.

    “Our yearly expense runs up to Rs. 6 crore. Thanks to donations from the public we have never had to struggle to feed the cattle,” he says. There are many who visit the home on their birthdays and anniversaries to make donations to the goshala. It receives maximum donations on Amavasaya and Purnima. The menu includes seven varieties of food including Jodphur ladoo, a preparation made with a variety of vitamins and minerals.

    National Livestock Mission

    Soon after coming to power, Mr. Modi had instructed the officials concerned to extend all help to goshalas. The programme would be implemented under the National Livestock Mission (NLM) – a scheme aimed at entrepreneurship development and employment generation in livestock sector. And as part of that, fodder seeds and chaff cutters would be supplied to goshalas across the country by concerned authorities. They have also been asked to take up vaccination programme at regular intervals.

    There has been persistent demand from the North Eastern States seeking support for all round development of piggery in the region. For the first time, under NLM a Sub-Mission on Pig Development in North-Eastern Region is provided wherein Government of India would support the State Piggery Farms.

    Century old Gaushala in Punjab

    stablished in 1903 under the leadership of Thakur Mahachand and Rai Bhadur Ratan Chand Mehra, the Pinjrapole Gowshala at Ghee Mandi here started with a small bhavan that was a shelter for nine old cows initially. The gowshala’s repute spread so fast that Maharaja Gulab Singh of Jammu and Kashmir took upon himself to see to its development.

    About 1200 litre of milk that the gowshala is able to get everyday is distributed among general public, schools. Doctors often recommend this milk to patients, as this milk is pure and without the use of injections and water adulteration. The gowshala has its own specialist doctors — Dr Hardiyal Singh and Dr Lakhwinder Singh — who treat sick cows.

    This gowshala is basically run on the donations. The All India Animal Husbandry Board, Chennai, provides grant of about Rs 50,000 every year. The gowshala has fixed deposits of its own and interest income from these deposits is used for its maintenance.

    If they confined to 4walls (goushala) you need employees/food/shelter/power etc it is literally needs finance. Better leave them alone like before on streets (or)you want clean WEST'N streets transfer them to nearest FOREST.

    BTW you simply can't say goushala/zoo's are good for animals, they are JAILS disgusting PRISONS.No animal like the prison

    Yawn. Who really gives a sh!t for NRI traitors?

    Gaushalas have been around for thousands of years, at least in the Hindu-ruled parts of India. In modern times they provide employment and revenue generation, as well as preservation of local breeds.

    Animal husbandry in Rajasthan

    Animal Husbandry is a major economic activity of the rural peoples, specially in the arid and semi-arid regions of the Rajasthan. About 8% of G.D.P. of the State is contributed by Livestock sector alone. This sector has great potential for rural self-employment at the lowest possible investment per unit. Rajasthan contributes over 10% of total milk production, 30% of mutton and 35 % wool produced in the country.

    The pig is one of the most efficient animal having a great food conversion efficiency among domesticated livestock, and can play an important role in improving the socio-economic status of the weaker sections of the society.

    the indigenous breed improvement programme is being operated in the native tract of cattle breeds viz. Gir (Ajmer), Tharparkar (Barmer), Rathi (Bikaner), Kankrej (Jalore) and Nagauri (Nagaur district). Under the Rajasthan Goshala Act 1960 till now 1163 Goshalas has been registered. These Goshalas have been established by the public trusts for maintaining old, infirm, unproductive cows and its progeny. Goshalas may be used for preservation & conservation of indigenous breeds.

    Rajasthan is having 3 well known breeds of goats viz.: Jakharana, Sirohi, and Marwari breeds. The goat population of Rajasthan is more than 169 millions, which is almost 18% of India's total goat population.

    Migration of sheep is a regular feature of sheep rearing in the western parts of Rajasthan. Sheep from southern parts of Jodhpur-Jaisalmer pass through Bali, Abu-road through Palanpur, reach up to river beds in Baroda, and Surat where they spend about two months. Similarly sheep from northern parts of these regions go through Sawai Madhopur or Hindaun to river bank in Mathura. Usually, the farmers set out on their journey in winter and return to their homes in early monsoon.

    Old news but good news:

    Mathura district to be Declared 'Goshala Kshetra'

    "Mathura would be first such district in Uttar Pradesh to be recognised as 'cow protected zone'," he added. Mathura Chief Development Officer (CDO) Andra Vamsi said, "Plans are being worked out to promote goshalas to run on scientific lines as cows have importance in our agrarian economy and among people of Mathura and Vrindavan." Vrindavan has around 30 goshalas with over 10,000 cows. In Barsana the goshala run by Maan Mandir has more than 30,000 cows and most ashrams have their own goshalas, he said, adding "Cow economics has been a favourite subject of discussion in the Braj area of Sri Krishna-Radha."

    The Braj region has for a long time been demanding a national institute of cows in Mathura or Vrindavan. "A centrally-funded institute of goats is already there at Farah, 10 kms from Mathura refinery," said social activist Ashok Bansal. Bhatnagar said all efforts should be made to promote organic farming and encouraging farmers to use cow dung/compost in place of chemical fertilisers. "We will shortly have training workshops to educate farmers on how to switch over to organic farming. Mathura district has thousands of cows and tonnes of precious resource as gobar is not being put to advantageous use. "At a later stage we can ban use of chemical fertilisers in the district. In Agra we have already banned burning of cow dung cakes," he said.

    V. Sivakumar, an Indian-American engineer from Tirupur and his team regularly rescue Kangayam bulls from slaughter.

    He has introduced the mobile app as an extension of rescue/rehabilitation/conservation activities to improve breeding of genetically pure Kangayam cattle and ensure sales to only needy farmers.

    Thakur.Madan Singh of Danta founded the Ram Rajya Parishad along with Swami Karpatri. Later on he fought the 1972 Rajasthan elections as a nominee of Swatantra Party and was later President of Jan Sangh. .

    With Swami Karpatri he led the anti-cow slaughter movement. The Congress government of Rajasthan filed multiple cases against him to curb the rise of the Ram Rajya Parishad and cut its funding.

    But while stridently anti-Congress, Thakur Madan Singh was a staunch nationalist. With the Chinese invasion in 1962 he donated his property to the national cause, earning the grateful admiration of Nehru and Krishna Menon. The gaushalas in Danta are a memory to his faith and traditional values.

    Cow protection laws implemented in Jammu but not in Kashmir

    It is in this context that the Jammu bench of the J&K High Court stated: “Divisional Commissioner Kashmir has not filed an appropriate response regarding the smuggling and slaughtering of bovine animals and subsequently their sale especially in Kashmir valley”. slaughtering or killing of bovine animals is an offence punishable under Section 298-A and possession of such slaughtered animal is an act punishable under Section 298-B of the RPC.

    meanwhile the hypocrite Islamists have moved the Srinagar bench of J&K High court to ban liquor in the state! The "Karwani Islami" organisation has filed a PIL.

    So on the one hand they are critical of govt ban of cow slaughter and beef consumption yet want the same govt to ban liquor consumption.

    Great Move!! Due to chemical fertilizers the fertility of our land has gone. Hence moving back to organic farming, will revive the production.


    Plus beef production requires 10 times more water than wheat production for 100 kgs of output. In a country like India this is not acceptable.
