Re: Dairy Farm Details

According to market demand for milk ,you may prefer to Murrah or Mehsana buffaloes for milk production in AP.Specially Murrah is good which having origin in Rihtak In Haryana or some part of Delhi area also.The cost for purchase of Murrah is ranging from 40 to 45 thousands having avarege 12 litres daily milk production.In proper management ( Feeding,Housing & care etc) ,these animals may give milk up to 6- 7 months after parturition.I have not any authorised contact details for purchase of these buffaloes.For land requirement you may see following attachment to study it thoroughly.The minimum weight of Murrah buffalo ranging from 500-600 kgs so think o this for calculation of daily fodder requirement,ratin & land requirement through studying the attachments given below.The pther breed of Buffalo like Pandharpuri is also good as it also con give 10 litres of milk production with good management compaired to Murrah or Mehsana .Pandharpuri buffalo is lean in body condition & requires less feed & maintanenece as compaired to Murrah & is good in disease resistance.The native tract of Pandharpuri buffalo is Pandharpur Akluj area of Solapur district in maharashtra.
It is essential if you take training on buffalo management prior to starting buffalo farm as it will clear you ideas & goals for buffalo farming.
