If Not For The Work Of These Two Men, India Might Just Lose All Its Indigenous Cows.

At the time of independence, India had 111 varieties of indigenous cows. Today, there are just 37 left. Watch what one man is doing about this crisis.

If Not For The Work Of These Two Men, India Might Just Lose All Its Indigenous Cows.

Before you watch the story of Chandran Master, read this.
In 2011, the mighty Gir cow from Gujarat set the world record for highest milk yield of over 60 kiloliter. But this was in Brazil, not India. India is home to the world’s smallest cow, Kerala’s Vechur, that’s on the FAO’s World Watch List of Domestic Animal Diversity, in its ‘Critical-Maintained Breeds List’. At the time of independence, India had 111 varieties of indigenous cows. Today, there are just 37 left. The reason for this looming biodiversity tragedy is the government’s indiscriminate import of exotic crossbreeds from other countries. The foreign cows have put the native Indian varieties on the brink of extinction.

Now watch what one man is doing about the crisis.
