Veterinary training – in alliance with DJJS’s Kamdhenu Gaushala

For many years, DJJS is disseminating the information regarding the importance of Indian breed of cows all over India. They are working towards conservation and propagation of their right usage.  The trainees had gathered first hand information about various indigenous breeds of cattle and obtained training on the methods to raise them in a proper way. In Gaushala, they were thrilled to observe and learn about the beautiful indigenous Sahiwal, Gir, Tharparkar and Kankrej breed of cattle. Knowing and realizing their worth, they pledged to raise and propagate indigenous cattle's at their places. They further reiterated that they would like to be healthy drinking A2 milk of Indian breed of cows rather than getting sick by drinking the milk produced by cross-bred HF and jersey cows.
