Cattle waste are great source of nutrients for crops. Therefore a farmer can decmpose cattle waste and use them in cultivating crops.
Not only limited to decomposing and using, a farmer can also use cattle waste such as dung and urine to make biofertilizers that increases fertility of the soil.
Value added dairy products such as curd, paneer, cheese, etc. can be sold at higher prices in the market than raw dairy products hence increases profitability.
