Stray cows to be housed in cattle centres

Indigenous breeds of cows will be conserved and stray cows will now have a home.

The Centre has decided to provide funds to States for setting up integrated cattle centres (Gokul Grams) with the condition that of all the cattle that they house, 40 per cent must be unproductive stray animals.

This has been envisaged under a Rashtriya Gokul Mission that is being launched for conservation and development of indigenous breed of cows through professional farm management and superior nutrition in integrated cattle centres. One of the purposes is to promote green power and eco-technology through bio-fertilizers and bio-mass.
