There is no bad effect of cow urine on crops, environment and health. Its demand has also increased rapidly. According to the senior member of the Gopal Goshala Committee, cow cow urine of the indigenous breed is the most effective in comparison to other breeds of cows.
They have given contract to some of their employees to collect cow urine in Goshala. After collecting cow urine, they have to spend four rupees per liter in making pesticides. Every day 30 to 40 liters cow urine is collected from the cow.
