    For a 10 animal dairy farm with cows can be started modestly with 6-7 Lakhs . You are required to raise fodder crop like napier grass at least in two acres . The expenditure will be as follows:
    1 Cattle sheds & Other structures Rs,
    i Cost of construction of cattle shed for 10 cows with thatched or asbestos roofing 150000
    Sub-total 150000
    2 Machinery & Dairy equipment

    Sub-total 35000
    3 Working Captial
    i 10 Cross bred ows @ Rs.40000/- animal (includes transportation ) 400000
    ii Working captial - Feeding cost for 10 animals for 2 months & raising of fodder 21750

    You can procure cross bred cows like HF or Jersy in the towns and cities. Or from Karnataka or Tamil Nadu
