Conservation Efforts

The Goushala has 153 cows belonging to Kasargod Dwarf, Vechur Kapila, Malanadu Gidda, Vadakara, Cheruvally, Kuttampuzha.

We’re facing extinction of Kerala local Cattle population due to extensive cross breeding and slaughter.

We keep bulls for all groups separately for preventing from cross breeding in between the groups.


We regularly adopt bulls from farmers and distribute a bull and cow to Organic farming community, free of cost in our district. This “Community Conservation Program” has benefitted 150 farmers so far.

Conservation Efforts

Our organisation is working towards conservation & proliferation of near extinct breed of cow, known as, Krishna Valley. Although during its golden period, the breeding tract of this cow was spread across adjoining districts of Karnataka & Maharastra, it has almost been wiped out from Maharashtra. Members of our organisation, with the help from local AI technicians did an extensive field work to identify graded KV animals and educate owners to inseminate the cows with only KV bull semen & maintain the future progeny. Starting with only two heifers in 2018, our organisation has managed to conserve 7 cows & a male calf of Krishna Valley breed. Although not of 100% purity, efforts of the organisation has to improve the grading in subsequent generation of these cows & heifers.
