Dahod (Gujarat), March 16 : Believe it or not, a cow in a Gujarat village has gained attention for lactating without her udders being milked! The cow named Radha belongs to the dairy farmer Nabhirbhai of Kalol Village that falls in the State's Dahod District. He views her as a miracle and a great blessing for his family.
Radha lactates whenever she is given the usual fodder, particularly, green grass. She gives about eight liters of milk a day. "This cow is a gift of God. This is like a miracle because we have never seen any other cow like her producing milk which keeps flowing on its own while she is eating," said Sajidbhai Ahmed, brother of Nabhirbhai, dairy farmer.
"This cow starts giving milk when she starts eating. It can be estimated that she gives about eight liters of milk daily. It is indeed a miracle as I have never seen such a cow in my life ever before," said Manoj Bhargav, a resident of Kalol in Dahod District.
Nabhirbhai has christened the cow "Radha" after the name of Lord Krishna's beloved. Veterinarians are yet to explain this strange phenomenon. By Uday Adhvaryu
