The cow produces milk from birth and for 10 months a year and dries up two months before the next birth in a 9-month gestation period, an open period of 4:3 months.
The average production of a cow per day is 25 kilos, which increases in winter to 32:30 kilos and decreases in summer to 22 kilos, with an average year length of 27:25 kilos per day.
A kilo of milk costs in the range of 300:330 piasters, including nutrition and other expenses such as electricity, labour, water, etc.
The price of a kilo is sold 430:400 piasters, the net profit of a kilo of milk is 130:100 piasters, on an average of 25 kg per head per day, if the net profit of one cow per day is about 25 pounds. It is noticeable that there are approximately 25% of the number of cows that are in the dry stage and do not produce milk and become 150 milking cows x 25 g with a total of 3750 g, so the annual milk yield is 3750 g x 365 days = 1368750 g
The entire herd is born after about 14:13 months, the percentage of live births is 90%, about 180, of whom half of the males are female. They have been fattened and sold during the year. As for the females, they continue in the herd and enter the place of the cows that leave the herd annually, about 40 heads.
3 milk production stations Capacity of 1000 cows for each station
One station: 1,000 cows, worth 52,000, for each imported Holstein cow, with a total of 52,000,000 The average production of each cow is 35 per cow, with a daily productivity of 35 tons The price of a kilo of milk is 8 pounds, with an input of 280,000 pounds per day That is, in a month 840000
The cost of the cows’ expenses in terms of food, labor and medicine is 175 pounds per cow per day, i.e. 175,000 per herd inside one station.
Monthly expenses 5,250,000
Imported production of calves from the herd
It is expected that calves will be produced from one station, about 700 suckling calves.
To see the feasibility of fattening calves, it is mentioned with another benefit
