Kasargode Dwarf, Vechur cow become unique attractions

Thiruvananthapuram, Apr 21 : Kasargode Dwarf, that earned fame by its entry in the Guinness Book of Records as the smallest cow and the Vechur cow, which was popular in Kerala until 1960, are becoming the unique attractions of Agricultural Mela in Santhigiri Fest, here.
The Dwarf cows, which are popularly known as kitchen cows are only seen in Badiyadukka, Enmakje, Kumbatje and Karaduka panchayats in Kasargode district. Although the Dwarf cow gives only about two liters of milk a day, it is a milk variety which is most nutritious. The price of these rare cows is less. It is notable that NABARD had formed cooperative societies for the protection of these cows.

The Kerala Agricultural University has taken initiatives to protect Vehhur cows, which is another rich inheritance of Kerala. (UNI)
