(No need to to stock raw materials in hugequantities.)Entire establishment can be shifted to a new location (if need arises e.g. Fire, Floods etc.)One can insure animals.Less energy requirement. Biogas plant fed with cow dung can supply maximum energy tomeet farms day to day requirement. Decomposed slurry of such plant can also beeffectively used as organic manure.
