Gokul Dairy   pix and copyright Nick Cunard The Hare Krishna herd of 44 cows and oxen at George Harrison's old mansion in Hertfordshire is as calm as a temple. Gokul Dairy Farm [meaning place of cows ] comprises 44 cows and oxen part of George Harrison's old mansion Bhaktivedanta Manor in Hertfordshire . A £2.5m "protected cow" complex it's been called a "Hilton for cows" and a blueprint for sustainable dairy farming. The 3,000 sq metre building which is the herd's winter home, is a cross between a nursery, a workhouse and an old cows' home. Though not currently on sale to the public it costs £3.00/litre to produce the milk. The cradle-to-grave philosophy of the Hindu group known for its bells and chants ensures that any bovine on the 100-acre farm will not just be treated with respect while it lives, but will not be slaughtered if it is born male, if it falls ill or when it dries up – as happens in most commercial dairy farming.   pix and copyright Nick Cunard
