PROJECT REPORT FOR DAIRY FARM WITH FIFTY MURRAH BUFFALOES

  • Availability of 10 acres of land for fodder cultivation is prerequisite for the project,
  • Dung produced will be utilized as Manure for fodder cultivation.
  • Cost of rearing calves not considered as it will be repealed by their sale
  • In case of death of adult animal new buffalo will be purchased from insurance claim money.

  • Housing for buffaloes:-loose housing system (open type) will be adopted for the farm as it is superior to conventional bran in terms of milk production & growth. Construction cost is lower & heat detection for buffaloes is easier in this type of housing.  In loose housing system  animals are kept loose except milking and at the time of treatment. Details of floor space requirement (open & covered area)is given in techno economic parameters. A photograph of loose housing buffalo dairy farm is given below.Murrah farm 1
