Abstract:

A cow has high socio-cultural values, plays significant role in rural economy, represent cattle wealth and bio-diversity. Cow urine is the most effective substance of animal origin with innumerable therapeutic values. Various kinds of pathogens such as bacteria, fungi, viruses, nematodes, and mycoplasma causing diseases remain a major threat to public health, despite tremendous progress in human medicine. Many researches have been done and have shown cow urine use for treatment of skin diseases, stomach diseases, diabetes, etc. It is also useful in agriculture for preparation of vermicompost, biofertilizers and bio pesticides. It plays a significant role in production of vegetables and control of plant diseases. Researches on cow urine are summarized in this article. However, more well-planned researches are required to prove its qualities and benefits in agricultural production as well as medicinal importance in Botswana. Public awareness is also required to share knowledge and promote the importance and wide applications of cow urine.
