Is dairy farm business suitable for a graduate?


New Member

My name is Venkat. I am planning to start a dairy farm initially with 20 milking buffaloes at prakasam dist in Andhrapradesh. I am moving from software job to dairy farm business. Can you please explain me how the dairy farm business is profitable in India/Andhrapradesh by considering the current indian dairy scenario.

Thanks in Advance,

Hi, Starting dairy farming with buffaloes wouldn't be profitable and also it will not serve your purpose of making profit.
You should start with some Cross breed cows and in addition to that you can have buffaloes.

Try out for Crossbred Cow Dairy Farm Project Reports as per NABARD guidelines which can be customized as per your needs

Venkat - If you don't have a dairy background I suggest you do some homework or may be visit an existing farm to gather information. BTW, how much land do you have?.
