Training or any education programe in Dairy Farm management

Dear Members,

am like you , an aspirant diary enterprenure. Considering the increasing input cost, am sure that a proper, professional and business approach only can make the diary farm successful. I agree that a practical learning is far better. However I believe that 1st learn theory then do the practicals so it will help us to raise the question too and explore more knowledge.

I have searched lot for a formal education in Diary farm management. however some of the vet collages provides Btech,Mtech,.etc which is basically for a job. I have come know to know about a Diploma in Dairy technology from IGNOU but again it does not cover entirely on Dairy enterprenureship/managment,

If any one know about a good diploma course in Dairy farm management or Dairy enterprenureship pls share the informations. Once theatrical knowledge get through, surely will go for practicals.

thanks

Dear Mr.Rajan Mathew,

Access internet to get info on dairy farming. Visit and work in a farm in kerala for 30 days so that you understand the management procedures, milking, breeding,veterinary care,herbal cures etc.I consider that to be better than attending courses.Practical knowledge gives you more confidence in facing situations than theoretical knowledge. Not only that you learn how do they feed the cows with resources available in Kerala. For any help please call me on 9447088234.
