Keep these things in mind while starting dairy farming
- Choose animals of good breed, which give more milk. More the milk, more will be your profit.
- There should be proper arrangement for the living of animals and it is necessary to keep their living place clean.
- Fodder should also be managed properly. The quantity and quality of milk also depends on the nutritional value of the fodder. There is a need to give more green fodder.
- It is important for animals to get vaccinated and get proper care if they fall ill.
- Apart from selling milk, you can also market it by making many products from milk, such as curd, ghee, paneer, sweets etc.
- If the farmer sees dairy farming as a business, then he can earn a good income from it. The government has also been promoting animal husbandry across the country. Many subsidy schemes are working to promote dairy farming. Farmers can take advantage of these schemes by visiting their nearest NABARD office and getting information related to the schemes.
Dairy farming can prove to be a profitable deal if the farmer does it using a little modern technology instead of doing it in a completely traditional way, and run it like a business.
