Ok, this is not about a farmer. But thought you might be interested in the many uses that cow pats are put to, other than a natural fertilizer. Here you see a stock of cow pats to use as fuel in the kitchen when cooking. They burn well and it avoids having to buy wood. They are left to dry out in sun before being used as fuel. Handy for baking potatoes in makeshifts ovens by the sides of fields, for a hearty lunch break that avoids heading back home. Potatoes and cheese go down a treat after a long morning of back-breaking work.
