Ban Cow Slaughter To Save Economy

The first slaughterhouse in India was started in 1760, with a capacity to kill 30,000 animals per day. At least one crore cows were killed in a year. Once the cows were slaughtered, then there was no manure and there is no insecticide like cow urine. In 1740 in the Arcot District of Tamil Nadu, 54 Quintals of rice was harvested from one acre of land using simple manure and pesticides like cow urine and cow dung. As a result of the 350 slaughterhouses which worked day and night by 1910 India was practically bereft of gau. India had to approach Britain’s doorstep for industrial manure. Thus industrial manure like urea and phosphate made way to India. The tragedy of the situation is since 1947 the number of slaughterhouses has increased from 350 to 36,000. The slaughter of cows has disrupted agranian based Indian economy and forced the people to […]

Save Cows And Save Ecosystem

Save Cows And Save Ecosystem The idea of using animal waste to generate energy has been around for centuries, with manure being used every day in remote villages to generate heat for cooking. Now the researchers have found a way to combine dairy farm waste and the heat generated from data centers to create a sustainable ecosystem. If an average dairy cow produces about 55 kg of solid waste each day, which adds to 20 metric tonnes annually – the weight of four adult elephants. For a medium-sized dairy farm of 10,000 cows, 200,000 metric tones of manure (equating to the weight of 40,000 elephants) is generated each year. Unmanaged livestock waste can create negative environmental impact (air pollution and ground water contamination); and the methane created through anaerobic digestion of manure has proven to be 21 times more damaging than carbon dioxide, aggravating climate change. Around 3.0 kilowatt-hours of […]
