I can give few points which you can consider

  1. Market conditions
  2. Access to Transportation / roads
  3. Fodder availability
  4. Security Conditions
  5. Future Expansion
  6. Laws of Municipality
  7. Electricity and Water access
  8. Vet services


Everything can be arrange my friend, look at place where you milk is sold at the best rate, in which you think you dairy unit can be profitable.
