European Ox Training Seminar 2019

While we recognize cow protection as an important branch of our Krishna Conscious society, training and working with the oxen remains to many an ideal yet to be achieved. The 2019 European Ox Training Seminar will shed more light on this important, yet less practised side of cow protection. 

The seminar will teach participants the method of Voice Command, the gentlest and most loving way to train oxen. This method necessitates creating a personal relationship with the oxen and eliminates the use of violence and is, therefore, in line with the philosophy of cow protection. 

The seminar will include both practical demonstrations of ox training by Voice Command as well as philosophical classes. The classes will be based on Srila Prabhupada’s instruction on cow protection and ox training which will help devotees understand the cow’s and bull’s spiritual personalities and the role they play in Krishna Consciousness. 

Balabhadra Prabhu, initiated by Srila Prabhupada in 1969, has over 30 years experience in cow protection and ox training. His USA non-profit organization, ISCOWP, has been caring for cows and oxen since 1990. It serves, not merely as one of USA’s main cow protection projects, but also as an educational center that teaches devotees and non-devotees alike about the importance of the cow and the bull and shows the world both their practical and spiritual values. 

Balabadhra Prabhu also served as the ISKCON Global Minister of Cow Protection and Agriculture from 1998 until 2012 when he resigned due to health issues. Now that his health is better, he is once again able to travel and share his knowledge about cow protection.
