Hindus believe cows are the holiest of animals, so they refrain from beef even if they consume the meat of other types. And taking the principle of ‘full and happy life’ for cows, Britain is gearing to consume its most expensive milk drawn from cows at a Hare Krishna farm owned by George “Beatle” Harrison for the first time.
This dairy of 44 dairy Short Horns and Meuse-Rhine-Yssel cows produce 1,000 liters of milk weekly. The cows are milked in a shed that booms Sanskrit prayers till the time the calves are ready to be fed. Called Ahimsa Milk, the non-violently drawn pasteurized milk will be sold at £3 ($4) a liter around Harrow, London.
