I would like to have a techno economic project report on a dairy unit with a mix of 25 cows / buffaloes cumulatively yielding 250 to 300 lts of milk per day. Source & cost of of superior quality milch animals solicited.hii
You can go in for HF breed which is an exotic breed and yields more as well.
Selection criteria for selection of cows
* Good quality cows are available in the market and it cost around Rs.12000 to Rs.15000 per liter of milk production per day. (e.g. Cost of a cow producing 10 liter of Milk per day will be between Rs.12,000 to Rs.15,000).
* If proper care is given, cows breed regularly giving one calf every 13-14 month interval.
* They are more docile and can be handled easily. Good milk yielding cross breeds (Holstein and Jersey crosses) has well adapted to Indian climate.
* The fat percentage of cow's milk varies from 3-5.5% and is lower then Buffaloes.
