New Farm Community : Cintamani Dham Land of Touchstone tucked away in Kentucky

Fantastic news Adikarta Prabhu,

I wish you all success in this venture/adventure.

It is indeed very disappointing that our own congregation of devotees dont understand that protected milk has a cost about 6 times more than milk bought locally from the supermarket. I hope you will find more success there with customers who appreciate the cost of protecting cows.

Supermarket prices only come by depriving the cow of its calf, mechanical milking, killing anything that is not giving a lot of milk.
Cow Protection price gives milk to the calf for about six months, milks by hand and all the offspring and parent are cared for life in health and sickness.
Cow Protection milk is not cheap milk but it is the best milk available anywhere and it requires a persistent message of the need to support it. The costs of milk production in new vrajadhama Hungary are accepted and the departments who use it pay the proper price. The farm also has a significant income to support the whole system. Again cow protection milk is not cheap milk but it is the best milk to produce.

Hope to visit you in kentucky sometime

Krishna’s Cows

Its expensive.

Some are happy because they can offer their store milk because store milk is cheaper than the milk from their local devotee.

Some are happy because srila prabhupada drank offered milk because they can do the same and not have to try and help an alternative.

Some are happy that they are not drinking milk and feeling they are free from the implications of how modern milk is produced. Most are not only not paying for local milk they are also not helping protect any cows.

To commit ourselves to using cow protection milk will require a re-evaluation of what our money should be used for. Store milk £0.60 per litre versus cow protection milk at £3+ per litre.

If we want to work towards establishing cow protection alternatives we should be willing to support cow protection projects by paying what is required to support them. If we dont support the cow protection projects, dont use cow protection products, dont use any cow products then we are not doing anything for cow protection.

Because store/farmgate milk is available and we can offer it then this makes us complacent about driving forward cow protection projects. How many of our deities drink milk exclusively from protected cows? How many of our devotees drink milk from protected cows? If we dont do something different than what we are already doing, we still will not have our deities or devotees drinking milk from protected cows in another 30 years.

Support your cow protection projects, purchase their products at the price they need to support the protecting of cows, talk it up, help develop cow protection products from the cows milk, dung and urine, buy your food from a farmer using oxen, but certainly offer your milk to Lord Krishna with love and devotion.

This is a regular topic in the cow protection field. It is important to note that the methodology of modern milk production was not unknown by Srila Prabhupada and as asked by Krishnacaitanya Prabhu where is the quote where he asks us to stop drinking the milk. Praghosa Prabhu has indicated the benefits to the cow of offering the milk to Krishna.

Srila Prabhupada wanted us to have an alternative to society not only in the realm of cow protection but in so many other ways. To do something for cow protection then why not do something for cow protection and do something to protect a cow. |There are so many cow protection projects that need support. So help them, at least do something to help even one cow.

The price/cost of cow-protection milk

These are very important discussions. How can we have every devotee being able to drink milk from protected cows. Here are some reasons why it is not happening. I am sure that our desire for cheap milk is a major factor, I am sure that our dependence on free labour is another, We need a farm system that maintains devotees who are doing it, either by salary, by their own entrepreneurial ability, or all their needs are met by the temple/farm. We cannot expect farmers to live a life we are not willing to live.

How much money do we need to live? Tha is how much our farmers and cow protectors must also have from their service/work. Srila Prabhupada writes “Cow protection means good milk and good trade”.

I will submit an article to Dandavats shortly with statistics of milk production since 1993 from our farm at Bhaktivedanta Maor that Pancharatna Prabhu will find useful in updating his figures
