The Sambandha Initiative – Building a Follow-up System

Thank you for your comments.

The efforts in the UK are connected to the initiative. We are working on collaborating in different areas.

The social network aspect of the effort is vital. We are putting together a team approach with Krishna.com, ISKCONDesireTree.net and News.ISKCON.com

Thank you both for your encouragement. Please take a look at our site Sambandha.net

Your servant,
Pancharatna dasa

The price/cost of cow-protection milk

My calculation for an optimum protected cow herd is 20:

10 males:

4 working
2 calves
2 in training
2 retired

10 females:

2 calves
2 heifers
1 milking cow in first year of lactation
1 milking cow in 2nd year
2 dry (but still able to have one more calf, they also might still be giving milk)
2 retired

With this size herd, you can have one calf born each year and still not increase the herd.

By my calculation the cost per gallon of milk from this size of herd is about $12-15 depending on how much volunteer labor, free land, etc.

I wrote about this in an article on my blog:
