Special Winter Coats For Cows In Ayodhya!
The Ayodhya Municipal Corporation has decided to buy jute coats for the cows staying in various shelters in the city. Niraj Shukla, Nagar Nigam Commissioner of Ayodhya, said that the coats are getting readied and the scheme will be implemented in 3 to 4 phases. The scheme is starting with providing the coats to 1,200 cattle in Baishingpur cow shelter. The 1200 cattle include 700 bulls and remaining are cows and calves. The initial order for 100 coats for cows has been already placed.
“The first delivery will arrive in November end and each cow coat costs Rs 250-300,” Shukla said. For Calves, three-layered coats are being prepared and the soft layer would be used for the inner-most layer to provide more warmth. For cows, 2 layered coats will be provided and the coats for the bulls will be made only of jute. “We thought of getting coats stitched for the cows as they keep falling off,” Shukla said.
“A bonfire will also be arranged to save the cows from extreme cold and a paddy straw will be put on the floor to provide warmth if they sit,” he said. Mayor Rishikesh Upadhyay said that their focus is on serving the cows and he also said that they are developing other cow shelters and make them best in the state.
