The Math houses a 'goshala' or cow shed with a large number of cattle. Unlike other cow sheds, the one at the Math adopts a procedure of hygenic cattle-care. For this, there is a separate trained work-force. Fooding and medication is given as per prescription from eminent vetirinery experts.

An unique feature of this cow shed is that hygenic atmosphere is maintained in the premises such that people can stay in the floors right above the cow shed. This is perhaps seen in very few other such establishments in the region.

 

Milk distribution to children

Milk distribution to children

Most of the milk obtained, is distributed free of cost to the patients admitted in Vivekananda Polyclinic.The dung is utilized to generate 'gobar-gas' or bio-gas.

 

There is a water management system where rain water is collected in tanks and utilized later for cleaning purposes in the cow-shed.

 

The Math initiated a humble project of feeding hot milk to 100 preselected impoverished children every day. The programme was inaugurated the 4th of July, 2004, at the Ramakrishna Math, Lucknow by way of distributing a glass of milk, a banana and a piece of bread each to 100 children.
