Though all grass fed buffalos and cows produce ghee for healing purpose only some breeds of cow is good. These cows should be free from violence, captivity and all kind of toxic land and pastures.
YOG Pura Ghee is from cows from farm lands of Himalayas. These cows have hump on their back and huge lose skin from their lower jaw end till forelegs called dewlap. These are the breed of cows from which we can get the best kind of ghee for healing.
These cows have a special yellow pigment in their milk which gives color to their milk its said that the hump of these cows there is a Suryaketu Nadi which is like Adapter for sun rays which makes their milk with special healing qualities and purifies it.
These days’ science also understood about milk sensitivity and categorized A1 and A2 milk. Cows in almost all Europe and America have A1 milk which is not good for human consumption. They produce more milk so commercially it's a profit work to have their milk.
On the other hand, A2 milk cows are mostly small not heavy, not violent, shy and friendly. They have hump and Dewlap, their milk quantity is less and milk is distinguishably yellow, thin and less creamy. These are the cows which are considered auspicious in India and milk from these cows is considered as good as mother.
