Indigenous cows in Thiruvilwamala

Went for a half day trip to a place called Thiruvilwamala, Trichur, Kerala on last sunday. There was nothing much to do that day and thought of visiting Rama temple in this place with family.Thiruvilwala is a scenic place with hills and bharathapuzha river. We reached early there and while roaming around the place happened to see a variety of indigenous cows. They freely roam around and none of them had the nose thread. Typically they give 1 litre milk but are very robust and don't need any costly feed. Here are some photos...

No rope around their necks or nose? how do you get hold of them and milk it? apparently the tribals are too corrupted by govt freebies, that they no longer milk their cows

They will be quite comfortable without rope, basically no irritation and pain and milking should be fast since they don't give much milk !!!
