Gaupalan at Madhurveda Farms
Ethical Dairy Farming
As we know, cows are domestic animals. And they have emotions and intelligence like humans. So if we treat them like our family members, they will show equal care for us. They don’t like when we separate their calves from them. It makes them stressed and negatively affects the quality of their milk.
According to Ayurveda, calves have the first right to their mother’s milk. So we make sure that the calves are contended before milking our cows. We allow suckling calves to consume milk and get the remaining for our use.
Further, we don’t feed our cows any toxic medications to increase milk output. We also ensure that our cows consume organic cow feed by allowing them to graze in open grazing zones.
This is called desi or the traditional way of gaupalan. And the milk we get from the cows by following this practice contains high-quality nutrition.
