Meet Priya the Ox, King of the Herd

On a cow protection farm all cows, bulls, and oxen are protected from slaughter. Each cow, in this case, ox, has his own unique personality. Meet Priya, the ox who is king of the ISCOWP herd.

Priya the ox is a force to be reckoned with, at least for now. In this video, you can see how he has established himself as the king of the herd by defeating both Keshava, an older, bigger ox and Sri who is his brother. Although he has a tough persona, he also has a soft and gentle aspect to his personality. He loves alfalfa cubes and takes the cubes from Balabhadra carefully, and he allows little 2-year-old Bhima to pet him while we know that he could plow down all the humans present if he wanted to. It seems that he has a steady girlfriend in Jahnava who takes any chance she has to lick Priya and associate with him. In the first clip of Priya receiving licks from Jahnava, it can be seen that Madhava is licking Priya also and the recently defeated Keshava is patiently waiting as Priya receives his recognition as king of the herd.

These cows and oxen all live at the International Society for Cow Protection, ISCOWP. Most members of the ISCOWP herd have been rescued from the meat and dairy industries. They will never be slaughtered, but they will be protected until their natural passing.

Thank you

Your servant,
ISCOWP Co-Managing Director
