via Pongal Celebration 2018 (2/5)

After the near banning of Jallikattu, it was in our hands, as Indians, to safe keep our rich culture and to prevent the erasure of our traditions. As an ode to this statement, on the Pongal and 10th anniversary celebration day, K’sirs was home to the website launch of the prestigious “Senaapathy Kangayam Cattle Research Foundation” (SKCRF).

The SKCRF functions as a resource and research centre working on conservation of native breeds of cattle. Awareness is focused more intensely on the Kangayam breed and the Korangadu, a unique silvi pastoral land and farming system which is unique to Kongu region, mid-western Tamil Nadu. Kangayam breed and the Korangadu are interdependent and hence they need to be protected from the serious threats that they face. SKCRF also works to preserve the bio-cultural values and the uniqueness around our indigenous breeds of livestock and the traditional knowledge associated with it (Taken from SKCRF’s official website)
