There is no doubt that Indian breeds of cattle are heat tolerant, disease resistant and better converters of even low quality roughage. With emerging global warming the world now believes that Indian breeds of cattle, also called Zebu, have better survival potential than temperate climate breeds. South American countries have proved that with proper breeding and scientific management, Zebu cows can match exotic cows in milk production and fertility. This site is an effort to bring all the stakeholders onto one platform for exchange of ideas, knowledge, manpower, services and infrastructure available so as to equip our farmers to move from exotic to Indian breeds of cattle.

The Trust was set up for the welfare and preservation of horned cattle, improving cattle breeding, feeding and veterinary care techniques and other charitable purposes, with a special focus on preserving and improving traditional Indian breeds of cattle.
The Trust is setting up a modern farm at Paigalwadi near Trimbak, Nasik.
This website aims to provide a platform for sharing information on improvement in agricultural and cattle breeding techniques, veterinary science, artificial insemination, modern dairy farming techniques, and ethical issues in cattle farming, and a comprehensive multi-disciplinary database of information and statistics on the present status of cattle breeding, research centers, dairy farming, veterinary institutions and gaushalas, panjrapols and cattle welfare organizations in India.
