Illness identification based on cow dung

From Abhishek Patel, 2018-06-18 11:25:58 +0530:

I want to know the possible reasons behind cow hard dung. I know one of the reason is that if cow drinks less water then she will excrete hard dung but I want to know other reasons.

Dear Mr.Patel,

Thank you for your e-mail. As you rightly pointed out, one of the main reasons for hard dung is reduction in water intake. The cow should be provided cool and clean drinking water 24 x 7. Other reasons for hard dung could be  milk fever, ketosis or when excess fibre is fed. For further details  that would give a fair idea on Animal Health, Feeding and Management practices visit the following link: and
