I am new to cattle farming and want to start up my own. What will be the estimated cost of setting up 50 cows at spot, also what will type of machinery I will have to buy to perform daily job in the farm.
Are you planning on beef cattle or dairy? If you want to do beef, you don't need that. I don't run a commercial dairy, so I use a bucket milker for my 2 home milk cows and I don't need a bulk tank or anything like that. I just use the milk to raise calves on and for my family's needs.
50 cow dairy wouldnt break even here but MAY do in your area depending on your climate and the amount of land /quality of pasture you have available .You will have to suplementry feed to some extent at a minimum you will need FEL tractor ,grain silo .milking shed & yards vet crush milking machine milk vats, wash downetc.your location will make a differance to what you need
