Can someone suggest how much capital i will need and running cost, how much food (punnakku, thavudu, cotton seed) we will need for each cow per month and its cost. I have 2 acres of land with little water.

    Hi Prabu,
    I reply this post because you are a software engineer, Please visit the exiting Diary farm and ask their experience first. Instead of starting a diary farm better start a mineral water plant, please don't think I am discouraging but the reality is like that.people are ready give 16 Rs for 1 litter of bottled water but the milk buyer hesitate to give you 15 Rs/ltr for a litter of milk, you know how much effort you have to put to look after 10 cows and produce 150 Litter of milk,enormous! even if you work a a labor you need one more he will cost you Rs250/day.
    if you buy high yielding cow like Holstein Freshen or Pure Jersey, they are vulnerable to disease, HF cows suffer from thermal shock and milk yield would come down.
    of course you can produce the green grass and other fodder from your 2 acres land but what about concentrate food? what you wrote about oil cake, bran and cotton all are in high price. as for as I remember when I stared my organic mixed farm in 2000 the oil cake was Rs 8/Kg and the milk price was Rs 9 (by arockya) now the oil cake is Rs 24/Kg and milk is 15 Rs/ltr.
    I am a marine electronics engineer and addicted to farming I spend 2month at sea and 2 on farm. I too have cross breed cows 60% is country, I keep this only for dong and urine to enrich the soil. what milk they give the money equals the fodder, labor and maintenance.

    Dear Mr.Prabhu,

    In starting stage its better to keep 10 cows, learn the art of cow farming. Avoid brokers while purchasing cows. Avoid farms too. Imagine i have a farm and you are coming to buy cows. i will give the cows which are non productive or having some incurable disease. Better to go with a reliable farmer friend who knows how to select cows. A fat cow may not give good milk i mean more quantity. Good cows are available at kaverippattinam, near krishnagiri, after hosur, Bangalore- Salem route. You may have to negotiate hard.

    You need a cow shed with sloped floor towards the back of the cow. A mild slope for the water to drain (say 1 %). If slope is too much, it will be dangerous for cows, human beings and for pregnant cows. A cow needs a standing place of 2 meter length and 4 feet width apart from the feeding manger in front of the cow 1/2 metre.

    You don’t need any special permission from any govt body to start dairy farm. The building (cow shed) needs building permit as per your plan from the local panchayat. There is absolutely no harm in using machines. You will get good, clean, hygienic milk without froth from the machine.

    For 10 cows if you need a single can machine 1 or 2 people can manage. Please go after good oil free machines only with pneumatic pulsators. Never go for locally made scrap.
    Having a bulk milk cooler is a good idea because milk will not get spoiled. (not recommended for 10 cows). but if you have the facility to sell the milk as soon as it is milked, you don’t have to spend money for buying a cooler. Please do not buy local coolers, buy it from reputed companies only.

    Milking machines normally works on electricity and it has a milking can with 30 litre capacity. Buy only good machines with pneumatic oil free pulsator and vacuum pump. We are in that business. It’s better to have generator back up as during milking time you need power back up.

    Money is there from the front of the cow ( milk) and back of the cow ( cow dung conversion to organic manure or vermi compost with earthworms- you make vermi compost by leaving good earth worms- its having good demand in places where vegetable cultivation/flowers/coconut/where ever is there chemical fertilizer is used.)

    Maintaining buffaloes is good but not recommended for beginners. Keep cows, learn the art of dairying, and then you can venture into buffaloes. They yield less compared to cows, but as the fat percentage in milk is more you may get more money for their milk per litre cost. (Buffalo curd is tastier).

    When they become old you dispose it off or give it to some goshala. When they are dry, inseminate them if they are in good health. For any cow dry period is there.

    You need a small trolley machine with 30 litre can cluster assembly with oil free pneumatic pulsator. With one can you should be able to milk 10 cows in one hour. For cleaning milking equipment like milking cans you need acid and alkaline detergents. Soap is ruled out as milk will get the smell of soap.

    I am importing machines from turkey which is ISO certified and manufactured as per European norms. You may consult a chartered accountant who has experience in preparing agri project reports. I visited turkey last year to learn more on dairy farming.

    Drinking bowl ensures that your cow gets good clean drinking water whenever it needs, from the overhead tank. Water starts flowing when cow puts it head inside by the lower jaw of the cow pressing the lever inside the water bowl. A good cow requires about 100 litres of water a day.

    Calf bottle- for calves, you can feed required quantity of milk through the feeding bottle. its better to avoid to leave the calves for drinking milk from the cow's udder as it may bite and injure the cow. if pain is there cow will not give you milk.

    With Chaff cutter you can cut CO3 grass (which grows up to 7 feet height, may be more too) to small pieces. For 10 cows hand driven is more than enough.

    Keep in touch.
