ECONOMIES OF CATTLE BREEDING

 

 

 

 When I was convalescing in Bangalore two years ago, Mr. William Smith, the Imperial Dairy Expert, gave me a précis of a statement he submitted to the Agricultural Committee in Poona. I extract from it the following valuable information and commend it to the attention of everyone interested in the economic well being of India. This is a tremendous problem. The poverty of the cow is reflected in the poverty of the people. The reader will note the emphasis put by Mr. Smith upon two points. The milk-producing quality of the cow does not affect her capacity for giving a proper draught animal. In Mr. Smith’s opinion based on long experience the two go together. The cow that gives a substantial quantity of milk will also give a substantial bullock. The second point made by Mr. Smith is, that whilst the buffalo may apparently do good to the individual, she kills the cow and therefore kills agriculture. Both these important things can only be handled by adequate education of those who own cattle. of course if the State interested itself in the true welfare of the people as the States have done in many other parts of the world, the problem can be handled effectively inside of a few years but private effort too can do a great deal to arrest the growing decay of our cattle which are becoming an economic burden instead of being as they ought to be a blessing.
