hi Sukhdeep,

Good decision to get into dairying. From your post it seems like you do not have any prior experience. Dairying is not an easy job, I’m currently undergoing a training on the same and learning lot of things which internet/books cannot teach. Please visit a farm house and if the owner is kind enough, stay there over 2-3 days. Even if you do not take care of the cows or all activities, just wake up when he does and imagine doing all the activities he does. If you think you can do it too; then there is no stopping.

This business has money in it, you need to know how to make it… Personally I suggest you to take up 6 cows…buy 1 each in 2 months. You will do all mistakes while you are small unit and learn from it. Then expand… remember, you need 1 Acre of fodder cultivation for 4 cows.

Costing can be looked into once you are confident of the above :slight_smile:
