India was previously home to 72 species of indigenous cows. After independence we lost over 65% of them. All that remain are 26 species.
The rest are either hybrid or cross breed. Vikasa Tarangini (VT) is on a mission to preserve the native species and protect them from becoming extinct.
Vikasa Tarangini started JIVA go:sa:la in 2005 to preserve the existing breeds of cows.
Started with 5 breeds namely ongole, shahiwaala, deoni, kangraze, Red Sindhi.
At present, we have 9 breeds totaling up to 175 cattle including cows and calves.
JIVA Aayu Products (Cow-Based Medicines)
We started manufacturing A:yurvedic products from cow dung and cow urine mixed with some other Ayurvedic herbs in our go:sa:la in 2012 after receiving training at Go: Vigyan Anusandhan Kendra at Nagpur, Maharashtra. Aayu is the brand name of our cow-based A:yurvedic products.
The Atharva Veda used the word “Aayu paya” for cow-based products as these products increase life span and promote good health.
Aayu means life or life-span.Hence we named the products ‘Aayu’.
