Dear Kalpesh Patel,

You are very near to Gujarat why cannot you make a trip for 4/5 days to know more about the above details.  These details change based on the source of the cow you are selecting, the feeding pattern by the earlier owner, the conditions in which the cow lived, lactation cycle etc.

If you are planing big then spend some quality time with few dairies around you which are matching your dream.

Hello Krishna

Kindly share information about feeding cost per day ?


Pl note as follows;

Feeding cost depends on

  1. the breed of cow.
  2. the weight of the cow.
  3. the age and health of cow.
  4. the type of food you are having like green, dry grains etc
  5. whether all the food is produced in your own or purchasing from the market.
  6. labour involved, the wages/salary of labour you are paying.
  7. feed chapper type and running cost.

Many of the above have to be considered based on your area and demand for those.

Please meet few farmers in your area.  You will get theoretical knowledge here which will help only 5% in the field, 95%knowledge to be earned or learned by visiting farmers and doing yourself.
