“Our Aim is to provide care to the abandoned cows and to increase the yield of Hygienic Milk”.

The Trust has maintained a Dairy Farm to cater its own domestic requirement of pure milk. The Trust persists high yielding cross breed cows, having total herd strength of 165 (H.F and Jr.) milking cows. The feed for cows is also produced in house by practicing “Organic farming” ultimately feeding affects milk production. The Trust has adopted fully mechanized Milk production which is one of the most hygienic ways of getting milk.

The Trust runs a Gau Seva Kendra throughout the year in which approximately 1100 non-milking cows (the cows which are abandoned by the farmers being unproductive) are provided with shelter, fodder & drinking water. The purpose of this camp is to reduce the mortality rate of cattle in summer due to starvation. Gau-Seva Kendra not only serves the cows within the periphery of its campus but, also conducts cattle health checkup programmes in surrounding villages. A team of service providers go to interior remote villages and provide door to door treatment to cows personally, owned by villagers, which are examined and treated by Qualified Veterinarians.
