Project 6 - Water Buffalo

In 2005 Mary, the Church Pastor, identified that widows would be particularly helped by a gift of a water buffalo which could be milked and thus provide an income.

6 water buffalo at a cost of £300 each have been provided.

A 3-year old water buffalo, in milk, costs £300. A 2-year old, not yet in milk costs £150.

For most of the day they are tethered in groups but have to be milked twice a day, led to water several times and fed on rice straw / peanut straw and powdered food.
Milk is boiled before drinking – delicious!

There are no refrigerators so any milk for sale outside the village has to be taken 5 km to Chirala.

The Government vet calls every 3 weeks, at no cost, but medicines are chargeable
