Kasargod Dwarf(Kullan) Cow(Pashu)

Indian desi (native) breeds of cattle are declining in numbers at a very rapid rate. There were nearly 75 breeds of cattle in India currently only 37 recognized breed of cattle remain in India as of today, most are endangered, most of them are reared by adivasis (indigen) or native people. Different breeds have their set of qualities to cope with the local habitat and weather. Basically cows, most animals  and even humans living in hot and humid climate tend to become smaller.

This breed is found in Mangalore,  Kasargod and some other parts of Karnataka. Coorg also host this type of cows. Some centuries back this type of cows were also found in Kannur and other northern parts of Kerala, it was know as (sahya pashu – sahyadri hill cows). However almost all the cows have vanished because of slaughter and mainly because of (AI)Artificial Insemination. AI is killing all our native breeds, slaughter houses are secondary AI has to be much feared.

Small cows are excellent milkers because their feed to milk ratio is high as compare to other hybrid cows. Kasargod cow in the picture below; during peak milking time gave 2.5 to 3 litres of milk in a day. Also all Indian breed of cows produce A2 milk where as western or hybrid produce A1 milk. No clear research papers are published but definitely A2 has better taste, flavour and is also healthy. A1 milk is associated with diabetes, obesity and cardiovascular diseases.

Hump on the Indian cows help them to adjust the daily water requirement also the dewlaps(skin on the neck) helps them to cope with the extreme heat, keep most diseases away and also calve without any difficulty. On the other hand hybrid and western cows suffer horribly in Indian climate and in the long run they become non-sustainable and ultimately are send for slaughter(Common phenomena in Kerala). All the first generation hybrid cows born to native breeds are averagely healthy and good milkers however after two or three generation things become terrible, If mothers are not healthy then new born calf will definitely be in bad shape. Also in AI line breeding and inbreeding will be common because most semen are few years old, chances are mother and baby will get the same bull semen, which causes various complication.

  2. There should be all around awareness programme to make people understand the significance of Indian desi cow. Indian desi cow (not jersey cow or any other breed) has the superior and spiritual (not religious) value including her product like Milk, Urine & Gobar.
    There is direct link between her and mother earth. The peace and prosperity can be achieved on the earth by serving the desi cows. All people are not even aware of the significance of her product milk, urine & gobar.
    Her urine is used to cure dreaded disease like Cancer, AIDS, many other type of disease and her gobar can be used as an alternative source of energy through gobar plant for generating gas for cooking, gas for generating electricity and gas for running the vehicles etc. Gobar and urine also used as best available fertilizer & insecticides. Unfortunately chemical fertilizer and poisonous insecticides are used which is not only producing harmful crops but polluting ground water used for drinking purpose. Therefore, service to desi cow should not be linked to any religion. We must respect all religions and Protection of indian desi cows should be considered in the interest of all human / mother earth. I request people to research on this very important subject.
    We must work hard and target to bring law on complete ban on desi cow slaughter in the country through awareness programme, legal and political course. In order to achieve peace & prosperity on the Earth, we must put pressure on Modi Government to bring a law for complete ban on slaughter of desi cow, including calf & bulls.

  3. I want a pair of kasarkod kullan(both male and feamale) at Ponani Malapuram Dist. Kindly let me know the price and availability


    Seema have you managed cows earlier?
    Bulls are not easy to manage if you don’t have large pasture and few cows to mate with.
    They ultimately get butchered in Kerala.

    1. Please go ahead with your noble thoughts of looking after a bull also. I am having 14 desi cows including 3 bulls. They are like my children. God bless you when you can look after them both. Do not look back.
