The cows are served exactly in the way they should be that is with respect and care. The most important point in working in the Gasuhala is as said by an Englishman “owner’s eye fattens the cow”. Pushpendraprasadji , being the ardent caretaker since he was a youth, in fact since he finished his college and joined the life within the Gauvansh here, himself is keenly interested in working with the cows and the labours are also selected people who actually love their jobs so the word Gauseva sounds meaningful.
