Quitting their IT job, this Man opens a Donkey Milk farm, and gets orders worth 17 lakh!

Srinivas Gowda, a 42-year-old man quit his IT job at a software company to start a donkey farm in a village in Dakshina Kannada district. The man was employed in a software firm until 2022 before he decided to quit and start “one of a kind India and Karnataka’s first donkey farming and training centre.”

Where did he get this idea from?

Gowda said the idea behind this donkey farm was because of the decline in the number of donkey species. He said, initially people were not convinced by the idea of the donkey farm. There are many benefits of donkey milk which people are unaware of. The donkey’s milk is delicious, very expensive and has medicinal value. But people’s reaction to his idea did not demotivate Gowda, who is planning to supply donkey milk in packets. The farm, which opened on June 8, is the first of its kind in Karnataka and the second in-country after one in the Ernakulam district of Kerala.
