why an effective ban on cow slaughter may soon banish the cow itself


the economic consequences of banning cow slaughter can be significant. it is quite likely that over time cows may disappear from india. a look at the data from livestock census, which is carried out every five years, is revealing. from 1997 to 2012 the number of cows has increased from 103 million to 117 million. over the same time the number of male cattle has gone down from 96 million to 66 million.this is because tractors are replacing bullocks. the number of male cattle should be more or less the same as the number of cows if there is no slaughter. one could surmise that a large number of male cattle is being slaughtered or exported. the number of cows in milk has increased from 33 million to 42 million in this period. the proportion of crossbreed or exotic cows has increased from 15%
