Pimpri, 23rd November 2023: In a groundbreaking initiative aimed at promoting cattle conservation and raising awareness about the importance of indigenous cattle breeds, the All India Bullock Cart Race Association is set to host the largest horse and native cattle exhibition in Maharashtra. More than a thousand cattle breeders from across the country have enthusiastically registered for the event, turning it into a record-breaking initiative.

The grand indigenous cattle exhibition and animal health camp are scheduled to take place at the International Exhibition Center in Moshi, Pimpri-Chinchwad, on November 25th and 26th, 2023. The event coincides with the birthday of MLA Mahesh Landge, an advocate for cow protection, who successfully championed the cause of lifting the ban on bullock cart racing from the streets of Delhi.

This pioneering event marks India’s first domestic cattle show, featuring all breeds of horses and cattle. The highlight of the exhibition includes a unique ‘Ramp Walk’ showcasing 17 types of animals, a spectacle never before attempted in India. The competition will host breed-wise contests for various cattle breeds such as Deoni, Khillari, Lal (Red) Kandhari, Sahiwal, Lal (Red) Sindhi, Gir, Ongole, and Vechur, with first, second, and third places awarded in each category.

Organizers anticipate the participation of over 1,000 animals representing various indigenous species, surpassing the impressive turnout of 250 cattle in the Khillari category during the previous year’s exhibition. To ensure the well-being of the animals, a dedicated medical team has been prepared to oversee the health camp during the event.

The primary objective of the exhibition is to enlighten the public, with a special focus on the younger generation, regarding the importance of cattle and their products. This becomes particularly crucial in light of recent global pandemics such as COVID-19. Recognizing the vital role played by domestic cattle during these crises on a global scale, the exhibition is dedicated to disseminating this awareness at the grassroots level.

To involve students from government and non-government schools in the Pune district, organizers are encouraging their participation, emphasizing the need for the younger generation to understand and appreciate the value of indigenous cattle breeds. This holistic approach to education aims to instil a sense of responsibility for cattle conservation among future generations.
