I think the energy that the cattle have taken out of the food is the
problem.  Avoid the pre-processing, and use the raw biofuel.

Subject: [Stoves] cattle dung

Dear stovers,
India is the world's largest producer of milk. The dairy industry also
produces a huge quantity of cattle dung. Dung cakes are traditionally used
as domestic fuel and also for cremating dead bodies. But they have the
disadvantage of not burning as vigorously as wood. Dung also has a very high
ash content. Can we devise some method of processing it to increase its fuel
