Besides, India could also substantially save on the pharmaceutical front by using indigenously-produced traditional medicines and avoid usage of about Rs 50,000 crore worth of other medicines, said Dr Kathiria, a former Health Minister in the NDA Government led by Atal Bihari Vajpayee in the last decade.

Gujarat is the only state in India to have formulated strict laws to protect cows whose number has increased from 70 lakh to one crore during the last one decade,” said Dr Kathiria, who is also the Chairman of the Organizing Committee.

Gujarat currently has 270 animal ponds with 60--65,000 cows, upto 24,000 calves and 8,000 bulls. The Board provides bulls free of cost to promote cow progeny, and a Rs 1 lakh grant to institutions engaged in research and development.


India has the lowest production of milk per cow at 4 to 5 liters per day compared to 30 to 40 liters achieved by diary men in developed countries. This is not due to better breed of cows but due to better feed. In developed countries the feed ration is energy rich and palatable whereas in India the feed is devoid of neither nutrition.

The poor cows are under stress and it is surprising that they produce at least 4 to 5 liters. We should realize that a feed ration should contain 75% energy rich corn silage, 20% leguminous hay like alfalfa or clover and the rest needed supplements. Our starving underweight children should get at least one pint of milk per day.
