Do you consider milking many dairy cows?
“If you cannot feed less than 5 dairy cows to produce an average of 15 liters all year round, they you can never achieve the same with 20 cows or more. Do not think of keeping many cows until you have mastered the art of milking at least 15 liters per cow at least for two years.”
Choose a crossbreed when:
- You have trouble with feed availability during certain periods of the year
- You have few skills in managing dairy cows
