I stopped using all pharmaceutical medication when I was around 18 years old, but didn’t apply the same discretion towards my animals until some time later. . In this blog post, we share our personal experiences with common pharmaceutical medications.
In this article, we share our experience of piercing the nose of both our cow and bull for the first time. We utilized simple, traditional techniques, without the use of any synthetic anesthesia or tranquilizer.
In 2015, we stayed for two months in a small, South Indian village just outside Mangalore, Karnataka where we learnt traditional village crafts and skills. Such crafts and skills play an integral role in a self-sufficient, village life.
Our village education in South Indian continues. This article documents our experiences of learning to milk a cow by hand, learning to churn yoghurt by hand to produce butter, learning to make natural bedding for cows, and learning to clean with cow dung as prescribed in Vedic literature.
