Cattle Improvement during the Colonial Period in Madras Presidency

Agriculture and Livestock always goes together. Cattle improvement was the main concern during the colonial period and the British contributed a lot. Mr. Robertson, Sir William Denison and V.S. Thacker contributed their time and energy for this cause. Various types of hot resistant bulls and cows were reared. Stock farm in Saidapet, Hosur Remount Depot and Coimbatore veterinary farm played their role effectively to protect the livestock. Veterinary department was established and many officials worked tirelessly to improve the cattle life in Madras. People also got awareness by learning from publications, exhibitions and in fairs. Farmers applied new method of growing fodder crops. Thus, Britain though in administration, they reconstruct, revive and reform South Indian cattle system.
