Millions of cows in our country are wandering on the street due to a lack of shelter and housing facilities. They are deprived of the basic necessities, and that’s the reason we come across the news of the death of stray cows every now and then. Our religious and spiritual beliefs are associated with the mother cows, and thus, protecting and making the cow shed arrangement for them is our prime responsibility. Being an NGO for cow protection, Hindrise Gaushala is determined to construct a cow shelter place for 500+ abandoned desi cows roaming on the road. We won’t let them reach the slaughterhouses and cattle smugglers.
A cow shed (Barn or Cattle Shed) is a building or shelter designed to provide protection and a roof to mother cows. It serves as a comfortable and safe space for the divine moo creatures. By living in the premises of a cow shed, they will get a secure place to live, eat, and seek shelter from troublesome climatic conditions such as snow, rain, or extreme heat.
Cow shed construction is essential for numerous reasons. It primarily revolves around providing a secure and comfortable environment for the cows and encouraging efficient farming practices. Besides this, it is needed for the welfare of the mother cows. Given below are the key reasons why cow sheds are necessary-
Cow sheds are created to offer protection to mother cows from adverse and unexpected weather conditions such as snow, extreme heat, rain, and cold. Cows can rest and get shelter, minimize their stress level, attain a state of happiness, and reduce the risk of health issues.
Farmers can provide a balanced, nutritious, as well as controlled diet for the mother cows in cow sheds. It ensures that the cows get all the significant nutrients for milk production, optimal growth, and they will stay fit and fine.
Keeping cows safe away from unsafe and unhygienic places will help us keep diseases at bay. Cow sheds are the way through which the health of the animals can be managed and monitored properly. Thereby, the risk of spreading contagious diseases in the herd can be minimized.
After rescuing cows from the slaughterhouses and cattle mafias, we will need space to store mother cows. Even though we have two gaushalas, we feel that’s not sufficient for managing the housing facility of 500+ cows. Thus, we are working on the construction of a cow shed in Gharbara village, Tappal, to help the rescued cows live in a flourishing environment.
The comfort and well-being of mother cows are taken into consideration while designing and preparing the structure of the cow shed. Space for open roaming, ventilation, and adequate bedding facility contribute to happier and healthier cows.
Cow sheds support better breeding and reproduction management. Farmers can take care of the cows and facilitate better breeding and reproduction arrangement.
By housing cows properly in sheds, farmers can focus mainly on managing their livestock in a limited space and utilize the additional areas for agricultural purposes or conservation efforts.
Injured cows wandering on the street are unfortunate as there is nobody to take care of them and equip them with healthcare facilities. At Hindrise Gaushala, we are ensuring housing facilities for those injured cows.
Let’s come together and create a living paradise for mother cows. With your contribution, we can transform the lives of amazing moo creatures.
