Holy Dung: The Fabulous Story of Poop

Požehnaný hnůj: neobyčejný příběh hovínka

A single cow can eliminate 65 000 litres of dung every year. It shows just how important pooping is in the life of a cow. Dung, poop, manure, droppings, crap, turd… Despite this colourful vocabulary, animal faeces is a rather icky, not a popular topic of conversation. So whenever possible, we will use a perfumed code name: the Rose. In the animal world, the rose is not just a fl oral tribute to yesterday´s lunch. It can attract food, and even tells you who’s in town. But humans too have a good nose for using this precious substance. And humans have discovered a multitude of functions for our fl oral friends. Fertilizers, building materials, soap, beauty products, coffee…, there seems to be no limit to their use. So join us on this trip to discover their bouquet.
