Traditional cowshed management practices are dead and forgotten. We support the farmers and locals for market linkages while strengthening rural infrastructure and conserving natural resources to generate sustained livelihoods by agriculture and dairy farming.
Breed Preservation: Samvardhan
Livestock plays a vital role in the Indian economy. About 20.5 million people depend upon livestock for their livelihood. Livestock contributed 16% to the income of small farm households as against an average of 14% for all rural households. Today, no one knows the names of India’s fast-vanishing indigenous cattle breeds anymore and hardly anyone cares. Traditional cowshed management practices are dead and forgotten. India faces an acute fodder shortage that has left drought-hit farmers and livestock vulnerable. These indigenous cow breeds can act as a silver bullet in tackling the impending crisis.
