So, Agriculture is the backbone of India’s economy. Only when primary sector (Agriculture) is efficient, the secondary (Industries/Manufacturing) & tertiary (Services) can perform well. It is not new to hear the plight of Indian farmers. Between 2012-2014, more than 3000 farmers have committed suicide. Does it pays justice to the India as a nation whose 70 percent part is rural. But wait this article is about cow. Right ?


Cow in Ancient India

Tracing the history of this magnificent creature, we turned to ancient India till present times. Indian indigenous cow was worshiped in India since ancient times, due to many scientific reasons. Agriculture was the major economic force of India and almost every major Indian festival was related to a agriculture activity.
Indian Cow has been a symbol of wealth for people of India. The cow dung has been used as source of fuel and fertilizer for Indian farmers. It was all organic and produced high yielding crops. Cow was the only base of sustainable agriculture with environment friendly practices. In fact, cow was regarded more than gold at that time. Krishna used to herd cows and had very high regard for them. Guru Nanak Dev Ji also spent a lot of time to herd cows.


Indian (Desi) Cow Benefits

Desi Cow’s Agriculture Benefit.

Desi Cow – Indian Breeds of Cows are called as Gaumatha, Kamadhenu, Lakshmi etc., by the people living in the Great Bharath. We consider Desi Cow as our Mother and worship the same.

 
Why it is so important to us?

Desi Cow gives us the entire requirement of our farming activities in Agriculture. It helps us in transportation of our goods. It works in our agricultural lands. Thus the food we consume is because of the help of this mother cow. It gives us the medicine for our health. It saves the crop from pest, insect and fungi. Finally it becomes a part of our family.

For giving all the above; what we are giving. We are giving all the unwanted items for humans such as grass, stray, etc, after taking the oil from cotton seeds, ground nuts, coconut and the remaining thing is given to the cow.

In case this is not required for cow, for human being it is a waste and in fact we have to spend money to dispose this. Thus an environment recycle is done with the help of cow.

Desi’ cow milk healthier:

While milk from indigenous or pure Indian-breed cow has proven to be healthier, 22 varieties of indigenous cows have become extinct in India over the years due to a lack of encouragement in breeding, according to experts. Experts said milk from hybrid cows contained additional BCM-7 element, which was associated with paediatric diabetes, autism, and metabolic degenerative diseases.

IN India, traditionally milk has always been an important part of one's diet. Pure Indian breed cow milk and its derivatives were, in fact, recognized and accepted as having immense medicinal value.
Charaka Samhita, the ancient text on Indian Medicine, strongly recommends the use of Desi Cow products for the treatment of various ailments. The pure Indian breed desi cow produces A2 milk, which contains less Betacosmophorine-7 (BCM-7), Thus A2 milk is the healthier option.


Attributes of desi cow milk:

Calcium found in desi cow milk protects the colon cells from chemicals which lead to cancer.

Helps in reducing PMS symptoms and also prevents migraine headaches.

Prevents obesity in children and also helps adults to lose weight, especially around the midsection.

Calcium effectively fights breast cancer, while playing an integral role in muscle contraction, blood clotting, and regulation of blood pressure and function of cell membrane.

With the introduction of new varieties of cattle into our country on a commercial scale, our own pure Indian breeds are in danger. Indian milk planners should focus on producing A2 milk by promoting Desi Cow breeds. This is the time to rethink what is best for overall good health and to take into account the natural, commercial and

Social advantages related to the milk of the Indian breed of cows.

Since its recent inception, Desi Cow Devotees have actively upheld the return to traditional health values through the production and promotion of the Desi Cow Milk, by offering healthy and safe dairy products of the highest quality.

A cow in its lifespan feeds thousands of people, and one cow is sufficient to do farming in 10 acres of land.

Indian Cow’s Milk = Mother’s Milk:

On the other hand, the milk of Indian cow is found to be most nourishing. It is advised by doctors that infants should drink milk of his/her mother only. Cow, being a mammal gives milk for her calves but it shares her milk with the people for there welfare. Today we can make curd, cream, butter, and around 30 more food items with milk. Due to cross breeding today, there are two types of milk that cows give now – A1 & A2. The primitive cows in India have got A2 protein which has same quality and nutrition as mother’s milk. Hence the status of mother or Gau Mata was given to her.

Cow was considered part of one’s family. Ralph Fitch,merchant of England and one of the earliest English travelers to India wrote a letter home in 1580 stating, “They have a very strange order among them – they worship a cow and esteem much of the cow’s dung to paint the walls of their houses … They eat no flesh, but live by roots and rice and milk.”


NAGPUR: Scientists from the city's Go Vigyan Anusandhan Kendra say that cow's milk is a complete food, even having the potential to blot out malnutrition. It has ten times the soluble phosphate in mother's milk, making it an important intake for the growth of a child, they said.

These scientists were reacting to a report quoting a study by a Kolkata-based scientist that said cow's milk is nutritionally inadequate for babies. The scientist to whom the study has been ascribed, Debnath Chaudhuri from All India Institute of Hygiene and Nutrition, has written to the editor-in-chief of Press Trust of India (PTI) that his statements have been wrongly interpreted. Chaudhuri said that he was speaking about mother's milk being a better source of nutrition for babies rather than cow's milk. He calls the new report released by PTI unscientific, incomplete and incorrect, and said it has caused much confusion.

"Ayurveda has equated cow's milk with amrut and its medicinal qualities have been written about in many ancient texts. Other than being a rich source of nutrition, cow's milk has been proved to be a memory and concentration enhancer," said Sunil Mansinghka, chief coordinator of the centre and former member of Rashtriya Govansh Aayog. He said that several scientists in the country have conducted research proving this.

"Milk from desi variety of cows has high amount of carbohydrates, fats, calcium, iron, aurum oxide, many forms of vitamins and sodium among other contents. Together, these components make this drink a complete food, which can also be processed to make several other equally healthy food products like butter, curds, ghee, etc," said Mansinghka. He expressed surprise that an agency like PTI ran such a story that even the person being quoted does not support.

Another scientist has been quoted in the report saying that considering the pesticides detected in cow's milk, it is unsafe for babies and should be avoided at least in the first year of an infant's life. "The pesticide comes from what the cows are being fed. If the cows are fed properly and not treated with hormones to increase quantity of milk, there is no chance of its milk being unsafe in any way," believed Nandini Bhojraj, head veterinarian of the Nagpur centre.


Indian Cows vs Jersey

Today most of the dairies across India produce milk from Jersey cows. Jersey breeds cannot be considered as cows, as these are originally a breed of a wild animal named URUS. People of Europe hunted this wild animal for good quality and quantity of meat. Shocking fact is that even today the milk of these animals are not used directly for consumption in Europe because the milk of these animals contain a poisonous chemical called CASOMORPHINE. At this point of time, saving Indian indigenous cow is the matter of urgency for nation’s health because no food is complete without milk.
