Giving a new credible dimension to cow rearing 

$img_titleIndia has been a predominantly agrarian country. Cow and its progeny occupied an important place in agriculture and socio-religious life of people in India since ages. Fertilizers are obtained from cow dung often. Similarly, cow milk and yoghurt, ghee etc. prepared from cow milk was also in use of the people. Experience and experiments confirmed the medicinal values and use of panchagavya – a combination of cow milk, yoghurt, ghee, cow dung and urine. All this led to cow occupying a very sacred, religious place in Indian society.

But the increasing use of machines following industrial revolution, also affected the field of farming. Slowly animals were replaced with machines like tractors, and use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides went on increasing. This reduced the importance of cow and its progeny in agriculture. Today, rearing cows has become more cumbersome for the farmers owing to a lot many factors. Though the medicinal values of panchagavya are still relevant, it cannot b e established in today’s market economy. It is here the Bhilwada-based Parampujya Madhav Go-Vigyan Anusandhan Sansthan is playing an important role in re-establishing the lost glory and importance of cow in present-day Indian agricultural and socio-economic and religious milieu.

Panchagavya is used as base in many medicines. This Sansthan has decided to carry out further research in this direction. Cow urine is considered sacred in our culture not because of religious importance attached to cow but it has been proved medically that with consumption of cow urine many poisonous elements in our body are destroyed or rendered useless. Cow urine is also used in treatment of some diseases including cancer. Tablets have been manufactured from cow urine to kill its offensive smell. Bhasma from Cow dung, multani mitti and haldi are used for making bathing soaps. Besides this, some 42 medicines are prepared from cow dung which can resist diseases. Efforts are on to get these medicines patented with the help and guidance of scientist like Dr Vijay Bhatkar.

The research carried out at Sansthan proved that just being in company of cows helps the individuals. With this observation, arrangements are made for the people to conduct ‘sapta-gopradakshina’ (going round the cows). This especially helps the expectant mothers.

Fertilizer is produced with use of cow dung, cow urine and left over of the cattle fodder. Effective pesticides are produced with the mixing of neem leaves and cow urine in an earthen pot which is buried under the earth for some time to allow proper and perfect mixing.

With the success rate at this sansthan, the people from nearby areas have taken up once again cow rearing and using them in farming practices. This is the success of the project.
