The milk truck takes the milk to a central location for processing.A dairy farm may also have fields for the purpose of growing fodder, to cut down on costs for the farm. Farms which serve special markets like people seeking organic products can also be found.
An efficient breeding program is essential to a dairy operation, since production is dependent on dairy cows' lactation, which can happen only after they give birth. Dairy farms may also specialize; for example, they may produce milk only for use in cheese, cream for ice cream or all-organic milk.
Startup costs for a dairy farm can be substantial, however, so follow these steps to minimize your risk.Starting your own dairy farm can be a matter of full-time employment, hobby farming or anything in between. 5 steps to start up your own successful dairy farm:1.Work for a dairy farmer before you consider starting your own farm.
Many dairy farmers were raised on farms and either inherited from their parents or branched out on their own. If you weren't born into farming, however, you need to work on a farm before buying one for two reasons: first, because this is the only way to know if you truly enjoy dairy farming and second, because the experience you gain as an employee can't be learned in a classroom or from books.2.Start with 45 to 50 of the best cows you can buy.
Minimize debt by renting land and buying used equipment; you can always upgrade these later. But if you begin with poor-producing cows, you'll always be trying to rebuild your herd and you may never be able to catch up.3.Use family labor. Coerce your relatives to help you work the farm, if you can.
