The breeding policy of nation as well as different states started giving emphasis to the conservation of the indigenous breeds. So, it is the need of the hour to understand the significance of these breeds. Hence, this study was purposively conducted in the Erode district of the Tamil Nadu, which is the home tract of Bargur, an indigenous breed. The area was selected purposively and the data was collected by direct interview with the field professionals and indigenous people using a semistructured interview schedule. The study also relies on secondary sources including a wider range of literature given at various levels for its completeness and comprehensiveness. The study revealed different characteristics, management practices and conservation strategies adopted for the Bargur breed. The study helps to understand the role of the breed in eco system stability and thus the importance of the breed conservation.
