Unfortunately, these practices are slowly disappearing, as houses are being made with "modern" materials, and a number of more convenient (albeit,less sustainable) tools (like gas stoves, are available on the market.
In this tutorial, I'll be illustrating how to prepare the cowpat, and also a few of its uses.
Step 2: A
Hit the dung against a rough stone wall (preferably one under direct sunlight), with enough force so that it sticks. Then flatten and spread it against the surface. Repeat this with all the balls. Leave to dry for about 4 days.
Step 4: Using the cowdung for storing seeds
This can be done with both fresh and dried dung, but is more effective when the dung is fresh. To do this, just repeat the first two steps,but this time embedding the seeds in the dung before sticking it to the wall.
