Dairy Farming

Dairy Farming: If you have the space and the ability to care for cows or other dairy animals, you could start your own dairy farms where you produce milk, cheese and similar products.

Long term Production of Milk: Dairy farming is a type of agriculture for long term production of milk, which is processed for sale of a dairy product. Implement international technology for feeding, milking and processing.

Fresh Cow Milk: Lush green farm known for the high quality of green produce, Pedigreed, perfect and pampered Swiss Holstein and Friesian cows. 50 Point mechanised Rotary Parlour and strict process ensure hygienically procured fresh cow milk.

Instantly Homogenised: Instantly Homogenised, Pasteurised, chilled and packaged farm fresh milk is good. Sent on its way to customers maintaining absolute purity and keeping the taste and structure of milk intact, it is by far the best milk.

Our Cows should be: Pedigreed, perfect and pampered, our cross bred Swiss Holstein and Friesian cows are known world over for their ability to produce high quality milk. Each cow on our farm has her own bed, and is kept in perfect condition.

Apart from shady green areas to rest and ruminate, they are kept cool with water sprays and fans. The cows are nurtured and cherished like no other cows in the country. The reason is Contented cows give better milk! This creamier, far more nourishing milk tastes better.

OUR NURTURING: The cows are bestowed with care by a specially trained team. What we ingrain in our team is that it's not what we want, but what the cows want! So from 24x7 on-demand supplies of food and water to providing them their very own fans, sprinklers and sprays; from ensuring that milking is never forced, to being nurtured by expert handlers and healthcare providers, the cows receive expert loving care all the way.

DIET OF COWS: Cows get a planned, wholesome meal every day, with our specially grown high quality alfalfa, pennisetum, greens, soya and bran. Our nutritionists ensure the right balance of minerals and vitamins and customised menu plans.

The menu is also updated at regular intervals to include fresh seasonal crops. This “total Meal Ration” is designed to keep cows at the pinnacle of health, with one purpose in mind: the production of nutritive , wholesome milk that is naturally full of goodness.

OUR TECHNOLOGY: Mechanised Rotary Parlour and strict processes ensure that the milk is both hygienically and humanely procured. Every cow goes through an electronic health check every time it is milked, to ensure that it is at peak health for milking. And rest assured that the fresh milk that is dispatched from the dairy is absolutely antibiotic free.

How a dairy farm works: Dairy production has come a long way since the days of milking by hand. These days, machines are used to help the farmer milk several cows at once. Male cows are reared for their meat to provide the farmer with an extra source of income, and crops are grown as a source of food for the livestock.

Which cow gives more milk: Holstein Friesian are a breed of dairy cattle originating from the Dutch provinces of North Holland and Friesland, and Schleswig-Holstein in Northern Germany and Jutland. They are known as the world's highest-production dairy animals.

What climate is best for dairy farming: The ideal temperature for a dairy cow is between 40-50 degrees. When the temperature drops below that 40 degree mark, farmers step in to make necessary adjustments to their facilities, feed and daily routines.

Why do dairy farmers milk so early: Farmers figured this out a long time ago. Cows need milked twice a day spaced 12 hours apart, so 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. The milking time is chosen by the farmer to fit other things into the rest of the day, like to get the rest of the farm work done during the daylight hours or to get the farmer to an off farm job on time.

How much a cow gives milk in a day: Whereas a beef-suckler cow would naturally produce around 4 litres of milk per day, a dairy cow will produce an average of 28 litres per day over a period of 10 months. During peak lactation, a high-yielding cow may produce as much as 60 litres per day and up to 12,000 litres over her whole lactation.

What are the advantages of dairy farming: Dairy farming is an important way for farmers to increase their earnings and access to more nutritious food for their families. While subsistence dairy farming provides not only fresh milk and a source of basic income, value-added products, such as yogurt and cheese, provide a higher source of revenue.

How much does a cow eat in a day: Cows will voluntarily consume 2.0% of body weight or 24 pounds per day. The 24 pounds is based on 100% dry matter. Grass hays will often be 7 to 10% moisture. If we assume that the hay is 92% dry matter or 8% moisture, then the cows will consume about 26 pounds per day on an as fed basis.

Can you milk a cow everyday: This depends on the breed and use of the cow. Modern dairy cows, which are mostly Holstein do need to be milked two or even three times a day. However, cows not used for intense dairy production do not need to be milked daily, as the calf will drink up enough milk.

How can I increase my cows milk yield: Ten ways to improve early lactation performance and peak milk yield Start cows with a successful dry period.
Prevent subclinical milk fever.
Optimize feed intake immediately after calving.
Optimize cow comfort.
Maintain rumen health and prevent ruminal acidosis.
Identify cows with a history of metabolic or health problems.

What are Girl cows called: An adult female that has had a calf (or two, depending on regional usage) is a cow. A young female before she has had a calf of her own and is under three years of age is called a heifer. A young female that has had only one calf is occasionally called a first-calf heifer.

How do cows produce milk when not pregnant: A non-pregnant cow is given hormone injections in order to replicate what would happen in a natural pregnancy. The cow will then receive fortnightly treatments to maintain hormone levels during lactation.

What happens to dairy cows when they get too old: Past 7 years old, usually cows are reformed, meaning they stopped being inseminated and when their last lactation ends, they are fed then sent to the slaughterhouse. All cows, dairy or beef, males or females, end up to the slaughterhouse sooner or later. Farm animals rarely die of old ages.

What happens to male calves born to dairy cows: Veal Results from Dairy Production.
Male calves, because they will never produce milk, are of little value to dairy farmers. Millions of male calves are sold to be raised and slaughtered for beef, while hundreds of thousands of others are destined for earlier deaths to be sold as veal.

Do cows feel pain when slaughtered: The slaughter process has two stages: Stunning, when performed correctly, causes an animal to lose consciousness, so the animal can't feel pain. The law states that, with few exemptions, all animals must be stunned before 'sticking' (neck cutting) is carried out.
