Your cow –  Our farm

Your cow – Our farm is a unique platform for the people of Chennai to own a cow and get fresh, pure and unadulterated milk delivered to their homes directly from the farm.

Before we proceed further on the initiative, let us first understand the fundamentals of cow rearing. We all know that a cow will yield milk, dung, urine, and calves – urine and dung daily, milk for about 9 months in a year, and a calf every year during its productive stage. In return, the cow expects us to provide housing, fodder, caretaking, and veterinary care.

Our children and elders consume milk and other dairy products daily; therefore, we must find out how safe it is to drink the milk we procure from the market. A couple of news articles in the “The Hindu” and “The Economic Times” will help you understand the impact of mass-processed milk on our health.

There can be no denying that the safest milk in the world is the one that is obtained from our own cow. Owning a cow and consuming the milk offered by our cow is impossible for those living in a city like Chennai, especially those living in apartment complexes. Paalaar Urban farms has introduced the Your cow – Our Farm initiative to offer our customers the privilege of owning a cow.

Lets look at how Your cow – Our farm works.

It is pretty simple: – You buy a cow, take an insurance policy for it in your name and leave your cow on our farm. We will take care of your cow and deliver your share of its milk to your house in Chennai. The cost of maintenance of the cow and the milk the cow yields will be shared between you and Paalaar Urban Farms.

For more details, please check out our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) segment.

You pay for the labour required for the maintenance of your cow, which will work out to Rs 50/- per day.

You get 365 Litres of pure and unadulterated milk per year if you own a pure native breed cow and 600 Litres of milk if you own a cross-breed cow. You also get to own the calf that your cow gives.

You pay Rs 30/- per Liter towards delivery charges. The milk will be delivered to you 6 days a week.

As long as your cow is under our care and it is productive.

A cow’s price is mainly determined by its age, breed and milk yielding capacity. A reasonably good and productive cow will cost you anywhere between Rupees 45,000/- to 60,000/-.

No, we don’t sell cows. You can get your cow from your own known circles. However, if you want us to help you find a cow, we will recommend a few brokers/middlemen to help you buy a good cow for yourself. Also, some of our existing customer’s calves become available at regular intervals, and you can buy a young female calf from them too.

We expect your cow to yield between 1200 to 1500 Litres of milk per lactation cycle for this proposition to be viable. Suppose your cow’s productivity goes down due to age or for whatever reason. In that case, you can either sell/gift it to a farmer or donate it to a Goshala or temple. Please remember that it is illegal to slaughter a cow in Tamilnadu, so gifting or donating it is the only way to part with your cow.

We would love you to do that and as often as possible.

There are no hidden charges. This is your cow and wholly owned by you. We will offer housing, fodder, and routine veterinary care to ensure that your cow is in good health. Sickness and accidents can happen to anybody. Only during such unforeseen emergencies may you have to pitch in and help us help your cow recover. The insurance cost has to be borne by you if you wish to have insurance cover for your investment.

During the Pongal festival, you will have to offer new rope, bells, and other ornaments for your cow and a Maattu Pongal pooja expense of Rs 1500/-.

Please contact +91 8939773300 and register with us. We will deliver fresh milk straight from our farm to doorstep.
