  1. GOVT. Subsidy if any.
    [color=red]yes there’s NABARD subsidy which is very difficult to get  :frowning: :-[ :-\ :'([/color]

    [color=red]may cost somewhere between 40-45 lakhs[/color]
    3)which type Hi tech machine available for dairy farming…like milking parlor machine, manure cleaning machine, feeding etc.

  3. Best cow available with 20 to 30 ltr milk / day from each cow.

  4. Land requirement for present 50 and feature around 250 cows (keeping in
    mind maximum feeds will grow from own farm land).

My place is very hot in summer it will go up to 45degree to 47degreee in summer.
[color=red]you may have to install foggers/cooling systems and other cow comfort machines[/color]
[color=navy][size=100][font=comic sans ms]now my advice(there are better ppl to advice-like niksnarayana,srivinayakatvm,sri2012,chandra…etc get their advice too)
its always better to start with small numbers like 10
though some pplss have tall claims about milk yield actual crossbred cow yield between 15-22 ltrs with good maintainance and yield is not uniform throughout the year
yearly average yield will be 6000-7000 ltrs(again good maintainance)
parlour milking machines cost a fortune
manure cleaning machines also too costly project cost will shoot up greatly
subsidies are difficult to get–they are like cash back after few years-no immideate benifits
best of luck

Hi

I agree with Prem. Start with 10 and face all the practical difficulties, find solution and gain experience. then get bigger.

Whatever breed you choose based on your budget and requirements, after the selection target should be “1 calf every year” this is the golden rule most people forget.

Dear Sir,

Hello Sir,
I dont have enough land for cultivation purpose.
Can i depend on hydroponic fodder system for green fodder requirement. ?
Is hydroponic fodder system viable option ?

Thanks & regards

You should not be dependant on hydroponics.
Yet you can have a hydroponics set-up for additional feed and nutrition.
But u have to cultivate fodder on land, hydroponics is just a additive.
Before going to a company for purchasing the setup study well coz you can design one at your own with significantly less costs(about 5%) than the company manufactured.
