become a guardian
What does it mean to become a guardian?
It's very difficult to take good care of a cow if you live in a city. It takes a lot of work and effort. The "Planet of cows" Eco-farm offers you to become a guardian of a cow or a calf. All that's needed is to defray the expenses for feeding, healing and keeping of a cow that you've chosen. We'll do the rest. You pick a cow yourself as well as the period of guardianship that suits you, and the cow will give all the blessings to you. The donation for an adult cow is 5000 roubles per month and for the calf – 3000 roubles.
The cow is the past and future. She nourishes the health of all living entities, and she is the root of prosperity. The piety one achieves by feeding a cow is never destroyed.".
become a keeper
What does it mean to become a Keeper?
Every day the project for saving and protecting cows on avarage bears the costs of around 24 000 roubles. These are the costs for public services, grass seeds for the cows, feeding and maintaining the volunteers, purchasing spare parts and fuels and lubricants for tractors, construction materials, paying for the services of third-party contractors and many other things. The keepers of the project for protecting and saving cows is a charity program that incorporates 365 participants. Each of the participants is assigned one day in a year (the day that the Keeper chooses, unless this day has already been taken by another participant). A keeper takes on an obligation to donate 2000 roubles per month for the duration of one year, and chooses a date. And during the chosen day, everything that is being done on the farm is done on behalf of the Keeper, which means that all the spiritual benifits for that go to the Keeper. A beautiful plate with the name of the Keeper and his/her date is put on a special honours board. Becoming a participant of the program, you significantly contribute to supporting and developing the project for saving and protecting cows.

"Sometimes I am asked about the adoption, and people say that they live in Moscow and can't keep cows. But I live in Moscow, too, in an apartment, and still I have a cow and a bull-calf. You don't have to keep a cow in your house or apartment - you can provide financial help, donate for her maintainance, medical care and earn a lot of good karma at the same time. For cows are saintly, and they serve us constantly."
"after my spouse and I took adoption over such a baby, the business went better, and our lives have become brighter. Indeed, cows do transfer cosmic energy to those who love and value them."
"I had never done anything like that before. I am not very good with animals and gardens. I had doubts whether I would always have enough money for the cow and everything else? I have a mother whom I help and a daughter who is a student at university. My husband and I work with no holidays or sick leaves, since we get only a certain interest from the amount of work that we have done. However, I deciced for myself that I will always find enough money for the cow. The time passed. The cow was successfully taken care of. We, too, started to go through some changes. We felt no financial burden over the time. The first one to visit the farm was my daughter. She met Kalinji and said that she was a hard one to milk. She does not let anyone stroke her - just turns around and leaves. "That's quite a cow you have chosen! She has your temper!", my daughter said. My husband laughs about the cow being without horns, hinting at my tempter. Our whole family visited the farm in the summer of 2019. Finally I met Kalinji. We asked Anya to take us to the cowshed. Anya showed us how to communicate with cows in a proper way, so that they like it. When a cow is lying down and resting, one can approach her, hug and stroke her. One can even lie down on top of her. A glance of a cow purifies you, and her warmth brings comfort to your soul."
" I got to know about the cow adoption program in February 2017, when I came to a retreat in Konakovo called "Yoga as it is". As it turned out, among the other organizers of the festival, there was an Omsk team from the "Planet of Cows" eco-farm. With time and while associating with them, I felt that they became very dear to me, just like family members! I believe that the idea of being connected to these people was the main driving force behind my decision. So, I came up to Anna, signed a contract, and became a guardian of a bull-calf. Since then my life started to change. It was a rapid change, too. There were fewer arguments and aggression in the family, and an understanding came that despite all the outside events, inside there was a sense of tranquility, serenity, and happiness, the sense of protection and presence of God. All in all, it happened so that I wanted to protect a little bull, and ended up being protected myself."
"We shan't save all we should like to, but we shall save a great deal more than if we had never tried."
