First of all I wish to thank Mr. Chandra, Dr. Kar and M.r Murli, whose post have ignited the fire in me to think in the animal husbandry direction.
I wish to venture out into dairy and livestock farming as I see a lot of scope for the same in coming times. I would like to give you a back ground of myself so that it could help you guide me in the right direction. All assistance shall be appreciated.
I am a farmer and have my land situated near Ambala, Haryana. I have a total land holding of approx 75 acres, 50 acres of which is under mango plantation and remaining 25 is for crop cultivation. I also hav additional 5 acres land adjoining my residence where i grow vegetables for personal consumption. The same 5 acres is where I plan to start my Dairy and livestock farm. We have kept cows and buffalos earlier but not for sale in the market. therefore do not have much idea on the financials and requirements for running a dairy.
Kindly suggest on what scale should i begin and what would i require for the same. I know it may sound redundant but i require assistance specific to my setup.
