In our country with small holdings and small scale farming, there is no better alternative to employing cattle in farming.
While ploughing, the oxen stride with gentle gait, not harming the surface of the earth, unlike tractors. Even as they plough the land, the oxen defecate and urinate, fertilizing the land.
Cattle Manure : organic manure, green leaf manure, earth-worms, and slurry manure with cattle manure bond with the nature and make the land fertile. They do not create the challenge of chemical waste.
99% of the insects in nature are beneficial to the system. Insecticides prepared from cow urine or well fermented butter milk do not affect these helpful insects.
Dung from one cow is adequate to fertilize 5 acres of land and its urine is can protect 10 acres of crop from insects.

This place is situated in Pajeer Village, Bantwal Taluk, Dakshina Kannada District of Karnataka State, South India. Cows are quite near and dear to us and are rightly deemed as very sacred due to their great utility. Our’s is a serene mission to protect them from slaughterhouses and preserve and improve their breeds. Our Gowri, Ganga, Kapila & Amritha goushalas are the happy home for about 300 cattle’s at present.
