I have seen your product on the internet. My current requirement is about 250 kgs/day but I think buying atleast 400-500 kg/day module should be fine.
Please send me your catalogue and quote for the same on prashamk (at) gmail (dot) com.
[/quote]i like your too much interested in to this but there are little problems with this system
- we indian have plenty of land for growing fodder
- our environmental system is not like northern countries (like winter) our only problem is management of summer fodder which could be solved with silage.
3)cow cannot eat same kind of fodder 365 days it needs variations like we need.
- hydroponic system is costly. its machine is costly. I asked for quotation from one co. which told me for 120 kg daily fodder producing machinery i have to pay for Rs 7,00,000.
not only this but it require constant seed which costs Rs 20 to 25 per kg of any kind.
out of one kg seed we can produce around 7 kg of fodder that means for for producing 1 kg fodder we have to pay rs 3 + other overheads
but traditional fodder farming can give you massive production of fodder like
Hybrid Napier - one time seeding like sugarcane. one seed(stick) at re 1, in one hector 25000 seed require, 7 to 8 cuts after 2 months gap, total production in one hector around 170 to 180 tons
African tall - 45 to 60 tons
alfalfa, etc etc.
If you dont have water to cultivate then only use hydroponic
What relay Cow & dairy farmer need
cows basic need
food, water & shelter
shelter - not like our conventional type in indian farms cow is tide. cow need constant exercise. she needs space. so she could have rest & eat well. i prefer open type farm.
fodder - 2.5% to 3% kg(only dry matter intake, in green fodder only 20% is dry matter intake) of animal wight
for 400 kg animal 12 kg fodder ( 35 kg green + 5 kg dry fodder)
animal feed - 2kg for her own body + 4 kg for milk production
minerals - we take milk means takeout minerals from her body take it as per your vet says
water - cow need constant water for producing 1 ltr milk cow need 4-5 ltr water
what cow can eat if you minimum fodder
there are plenty of trees like acacia ,Ficus racemosa etc. to know this you have to visit your botany college or at agricultural college.
for near city farm you can use hotel waste or mandi waste most of the mumbai city farms are running on this
