Day 1

Visited Mattuppetty Indo Swiss project in early morning.
Mattupetty Indo Swiss Farm, spread over an area of 191 hectares, is famous for cattle farming. The farm was started in 1963 under a project originally called as the Indo-Swiss Project. The project’s aim was to develop an exclusive cattle breed that can adapt to the local environment. At present, it is home to around 400 high quality cattle, including cows and breeding bulls.
