Being in the profession of setting up dairy farms for more than 20 years it is indeed sad to see that the newcomers entering into Dairy Farming have these FUNDAMENTAL myths by virtue of which they start their Dairy farming business but face lot of difficulties ( due to ??? ) which ultimately lead to closures viz.

1. All the information is available on “Maharishi Google” i.e [ : Unfortunately there is hardly any page on Indian dairy farming on Google. This is because more than 99.99% of the Dairy farmers DO NOT use Computers & don’t feel any need to UPLOAD any relevant information on NET.

2. If a farmer (who is illiterate) can do Dairy farming why cant an educated one do the same : However we need to realize that Farming is not done on Computers but on Fields & is neither virtual nor simulated. One cannot visualize the size of an animal by just looking at a Picture.

3. There is no need to take any training/study about Dairy farming : We can never learn to drive a car by reading a book or by sitting next to Driver even though everyone is well averse to basics of Driving. It is equally important to Learn about a business which will cost/ fetch us Millions both in investment as well as Turnover / profits.

4. Dairy Business is similar to running any other business. : We are dealing with Live animals & with TOO many variables by virtue of which Milk Productivity is REDUCED & these factors have to be necessarily learned in detail so as to avoid loss making mistakes.

5. Automization/use of Machinery will optimize the Productivity. : Machines are for our convenience & have no bearing on improving the Productivity of animals. Animal productivity is related to (Balanced) Feeding which is the most important issue & is a daily recurring cost which accounts for more than 85% costs which keep on changing everyday; linked directly with Inflation. The management costs viz. Labour & Administration cost is around 5 - 12 % & treatment expenses are less than 2% of the total costs..

6. Throwing posting & discussions on various agri related sites will give information. : This has to be really seen to be believed.

7. Housing, Climate & Purchasing of good quality animals will ensure a smooth running of the Farm : Crossbred animals are present all across India wherein the temperature ranges from 22- 48 so climatic variation need be ruled out. Purchasing a good animal is not sufficient but proper feeding to ensure optimum production is very vital. Cost of housing, machinery & animals is ONLY ONCE & depreciable.

Majority of the people advising/posting are from Dairy Processing Industry(specialized in conversion of milk into Milk Products) & NOT Dairy Farming which adds confusion in the minds of new comers to dairy Farming. ( First impression is the last impression )

Please see blogs on ; these blogs will certainly give you an absolute practical & realistic picture of Dairy farming as is being done all across India.

Dairy farming is a 3 dimensional subject & not for email discussions or postings.

It would be ideal to discuss the subject in person or on phone.
