Cow protection has been going on at Australia's thousand-acre farm in some form since its establishment in 1977.
On June 28th, 2015, at 8.45 AM on the auspicious Padmini ekadasi in the greatly auspicious month of Purushottoma, amongst the sacred cows in the holy land of Vrindavan, Mathura, Kurma-rupa Das left his body surrounded by devotees, Vrajavasis, and uplifting Hare Krishna kirtan, with sacred tulasi on his tongue and head and his salagram-sila on his chest.
India is the world’s largest producer of milk. But in 10 years, we will be forced to start importing it. And the Indian cow will no longer exist.
These cows have been providing milk for their owner for years, but he could not afford keeping them anymore. Thanks to the German fundraising campaign, these animals avoided the chance of being slaughtered. Watch how they react.
The Ahimsa Foundation For Cattle Protection (AFFCAP), an organization started in 2012, has developed a certification process for all ISKCON India cow protection projects, or goshalas.
