Alambadi are rare cattle that originated from the Alambadi
Village in India. They are mainly raised in the hilly regions of modern-day
Tamil Nadu. In the past they was usually kept as a drought animal, but today
local cattle breeders are attempting to increase their milk production.
Alambadi are medium-sized cattle. They are grey, dark grey,
or black with white markings on their forehead, limb, and tail. Their head is
narrow and their horns curve backward. They have prominent forehead and hump
and a thick dewlap. On average, an adult Alambadi bull weights about 317-362 kg
and cow about 290 kg.
