The cow is a very useful animal. It is a domestic as well as religious animal. It gives us milk. The people worship it. The cow is given “mother’s” status in our religion. It is a pious animal.
The cow has a large body. It has four legs, two horns and a long tail. It has two ears. It is found everywhere in the world.
Cows differ in shape and size. They are of different colours. The cow eats green grass and fodder. It grazes in the fields. It likes green grass very much.
The cow gives us milk. We can make several things from cow’s milk. We prepare curd and cheese from the milk. Cow’s milk is very useful for the children and patients. The milk makes them strong and healthy.
The cow gives birth to calves. Calves grow into strong oxen. Oxen are used for ploughing fields. The oxen are the real wealth of the farmers. They plough the fields and draw the carts. We must love and respect the cow. We should be kind to it.
In several states of the country, there is a ban on cow-slaughtering.
