How the Cows are Doing


It has been a challenging year so far with unexpected health events for some of our cows and the opportunity to rescue two calves who are now known as Subhadra and Baladev Dauji. This e-newsletter will give you an update about the cows with health problems and how the babies are settling in.

The first two photos link to reels (short videos) about the progress of the babies, Subhadra and Baladev Dauji. The next two photos link to reel health updates of Padmaganda and Nara. Madhava, is still in the hospital. His photo links to a description of his condition and a photo album. There are also viewing links within the text to these reels and photos. Please read the descriptions in the linked sources as they will give a lot of information about the health and progress of these beloved cows.
