Farm festival puts focus on goodness of native breeds

COIMBATORE: Kumaragurubara Swamigal of Kaumara Madam and Vanavarayar Foundation’s managing trustee Shankar Vanavarayar performed gau mata puja for 108 cows and inaugurated the 5th edition of Kongu Naattu Velaan and Kaalnadai Thiruvizha on Friday.

Twenty-five agriculture business fashions spread across four acres display several types of cultivation. “The entire point is to provide tips for farmers to earn an additional revenue,” said a spokesperson. “The scholars of Kumaraguru Institute of Agriculture and the Vanavarayar Institute of Agriculture, who ready these fashions, were operating for the remaining six months. The fashions include poultry farms, cattle farms and combined millet farms, amongst others,” he informed TOI.

About 5,000 other people visited the development on Friday. The organisers are expecting 60,000 other people to seek advice from the development over the next couple of days. “We be expecting huge crowds at our cattle show that can see about 12,000 native cattle from around the country. Besides the majestic Kangeyam, which will likely be the focal point of the development, other breeds together with Gir, Tharparkar, Ongole and Hallikar will likely be on display,” said the spokesperson.

The animals will likely be paraded sooner than a panel of judges, who will judge them in accordance with their well being, repairs and purity of breed. There are greater than 15 classes of festival.

The 3rd day will see horses, canines and rams native to the area at the show. Visitors can take photos or even puppy some of them, organisers said.
