Anyone who knows the money-making aspects of cows and has a love for taking care of them can find an enjoyable and lucrative business in starting a dairy farm. You don’t know what to prepare for this venture?

That won’t be a problem. Just browse through this article and you will find all the answers you will need.

dairy farm business

If you have love for animals such as cows and recognize their money-making capabilities, then you can start a dairy farm business. You can make money off milking cows and selling them off to big dairy companies, or sell them off as your own products if you can afford the processing equipment.

Cows

Cows are the core of your dairy farm business. They are the animals that provide the milk that you will be selling off for money, and they are also responsible for reproducing other cows that can grow your business. Obviously, the majority of cows that you will rear in your farm should be females. However, if you also wish to make off money selling cows to slaughterhouses, you might want to retain a male and a few females for breeding.

Cow Feeds

When you rear animals, you should also feed them. Cows feed on a number of plants: grass, corn or grain, among others. You can buy these feeds from third-party farmers or, better yet, you can choose to grow them right next to your dairy farm. You can save up that way, and you can also make another business: selling off the feeds that you have extra from feeding your cows. You can also grow corn for your own consumption.

Equipment

Dairy farms are one of the more expensive businesses to operate and start. You need to have some elaborate equipment in order to pull the business off properly. Some of the more important dairy farm equipment includes:

  • Tractor
    An important equipment for pulling machinery around. Most of the other equipment cannot be operated without this.
  • Hay baler
    Responsible for producing bale that is then fed to the cows. Each round bale produced by this machine is enough to feed 25 cows a day.
  • Combine
    The machine used to harvest crops for feeding to the cows, or for selling off. If you plan to grow your own cow feeds, you would need this definitely.
  • Storage buildings
    These buildings are useful for storing the feeds and the plants that you grow in your farm. There are also specialized buildings that are designed to store cow’s manure, as they are good fertilizers for the crops.
  • Milking equipment
    This will help make your life easier. Having automated milking equipment in your dairy farm will help cut the time required for you to produce milk from your cows, rather than doing it by hand.

    Hi, i want to start a dairy farm business. I was just wondering if you can make a good living owning one. I would like to focus most of the intention on the cows and taking care of them and not worry so much on farming the land, instead buying the feed. Just wondering if you think this is a good way to go about it. Growing up it seemed like most of the farmers spent more time in the fields, rather than taking care of the cows properly.

    Hello to all.

    I notice everyone have a question on how much it cost to start dairy business so i will share with you what I read at blog somewhere.. do your own calculation because each state would have a different price structure.

    1. Each animal will require about 50 square feet living space and about another 100 square feet to be little mobile with the herds. so that is your barn estimates.

    2. about the grass, for each 5 animals, you will need one acre farm to graze.

    3. And about the labor, you will need 1 person for 10 animals to milk and take care of them.

    4. I have not looked into milk processing unit but that can be outsourced as well.

    Hope this calculations help. I am located in NJ and trying to figure out whether to move back to mother India or not so that's how i got all above details. I like to start some thing in Gujarat, more like a process the milk and make a byproducts from it. I am planning to get some college courses here and may be work in a cheese factory to get my hands dirty and learn. I love to chat with someone who already have similar infrastructure set or planning to do so.

    If you wish to start a dairy farm, all the basics such as
    1. Set up costs
    2. How to start?
    3. Types of breeds (cows & buffaloes)
    4. Milk derivative products
    5. Business plan
    6. Operating cost
    7. Capital cost
    8. How to market the produce?
    9. Cow feed: types, costs and maintenance
    I have a complete book/e-book. Dare I say that before you invest in real life, it is better to equip yourself with the challenges you will face down the line. Many folks that I have come across, fall in love with the idea of having a dairy farm and becoming a kisan kanhiyaa but their ventures in which they have put at least lacs of rupees never takes off because ground reality and unpreparedness bites them in few months. Please email me at dairyfarmingexpertATgmailDOTcom I can send you a paper backed or a password protected pdf. cheers!
