Desi Cow Milk Price

What is Desi Cow?

Desi cow refers to the indigenous cow breeds of India. India is blessed with diverse cow breeds having unique identities and features. More than thirty indigenous cow breeds are known to exist in India. The desi cow breeds are categorized into three groups depending on their practical utility. Gir, Tharparkar, Sahiwal, Kankrej, Red Sindhi and Rathi have been grouped as milk or dairy breeds, Ongole and Haryana as dual breeds and the rest as draught breeds. The dairy breeds have usually been identified basically depending on the milking capacity of the cows conventionally.   Interestingly, all desi cow breeds produce A2 milk which is nutritionally superior and have a modulatory effect on human health. However, recent knowledge gained on the quality of milk produced by cow breeds has thrown light on the importance of mini cow breeds like the KapilaMalnad GiddaVechur, etc. for the dairy purpose, as their milk has been ranked superior in nutritional and fitness index.   This trend has already been started in India, with few dairy farmers opting exclusively the mini cow breeds for the dairy industry. The maintenance cost of these breeds is quite economical, as they are well adapted for pasture grazing and their food requirement is also quite low when compared to large breeds like the GirOngole, etc. Moreover, desi cow milk price is attractive and hence mini desi cow farming is catching up momentum during recent years.
