About Us

On the outbreak of the monsoon the cattle are sorted out according to age in three classes:

Below one year, one to two year, and two to three years. They are also segregated according to sex and let into the grazing areas in batches of 10 to 20 according to the availability and extent of pasturage. Bulls ready for sale are given preferential treatment; so also weak animals that do not thrive in a large herd are put in smaller batches of 5 for grazing areas are provided with wells which are sloped in such way that the cattle can get into them and drink water freely.

An interesting feature of the grazing areas is the wide prevalence of white babul trees (Acacia Alba).
