Grass based dairy farming is very profitable. Just make sure that you are in the right location, has proper knowledge about this type of farming and determined to try this form of venture.

If you have a hectare of land and you want it to be productive, it is best to try grass-based dairy farming.

Yet, before trying this kind of dairy farming, there is some important information that you have to know first. This is to ensure that you will be able to make this form of farming successful.

Where is Grass-Based Dairy Farming Suited?

Grass based dairy farming is very similar to the traditional kind of farming that has originated in New Zealand. This is very ideal if you are living in warm places. However, there are also some places where grass-based dairy farming is adapted even if the place is cold. When it comes to places with winter season, the cattle and other farm animals usually spend half of the year outside, while the other half is inside the small houses for animals.

What to Consider When Planning to Try This Form of Farming?

If you are thinking of planning to establish your grass-based dairy farming, it is important that you have the right location. See to it that it is big enough based on the number of animals that you want to take care. In addition to that, see to it that the place has access to water and food. There should also be proper supply of food and water. Since dairy animals might also experience diseases at times, you should also be prepared with your medications. If you have enough budget, it is important for you to secure your own equipment along with a veterinarian. Other things you should consider are the following:

  • Staff
  • Type of animals to be domesticated
  • Size of the farm

The Benefits of Dairy Farming

There are some benefits that you will like the most when running this kind of dairy farming. One of which is the cheapness of operation cost. Usually, you do not need to purchase expensive equipment unlike when you try technological-based farming. In addition to that, the food needed by the animals is no longer a problem. This is because farmers who want to try this form of farming can already use the manure produced by the animals in order to grow the grass that will be fed to them. If you want to immediately start your own farm, this is also the type that you need. There are no complex preparations needed when planning to try this type.

Drawbacks of Grass-Based Dairy Farming

After understanding the benefits of this form of farming, it is also important for you to consider some of its disadvantages, if there are. Since you are not operating a modern type of farming, expect that you need to exert double time in grass-based dairy farming. Usually, milking your animals will take some time unlike when you use some pieces of milking equipment. Other than this, there are no additional concerns you will experience.
