Taking the produce as a form of payment

Q: Zaid bought a cow worth Rs. 2 lakh. He gave it to Aslam on the condition that Aslam will take care of the cow, and will be responsible for providing it with food. Zaid will be taking 3kg of the total milk, and Aslam will take the rest of the milk, whether (4 kg, 5 kg or more). Is it a valid deal?

A: Aslam can stipulate a fixed payment for taking care of Zaid's cow and Zaid can sell part of the milk to Aslam at a fixed price.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
