A dairy farm business is commonly referred to as an all-season opportunity due to the constant demand for milk and other dairy products around the world. Milk production in India is increasing by more than 3% to 4% per year, according to reports. Dairy farming has evolved into a lucrative industry for entrepreneurs over the years.

A person starting out in this business should expect to work 14 to 18 hours per day. Furthermore, extensive effort and useful resources are required for the successful operation of a dairy farm. If you want to start a dairy farm, you should be aware of the following factors:


To start a typical individual dairy farm, contact the Department of Animal Husbandry, Veterinary, and Dairy Development first. If your farm is registered with the Dairy Cooperative Society, there is no need to contact any other government agency.

To start a dairy farm, it is mandatory to register with the Food Safety and Standard Authority of India (FSSAI). If it’s a large farm, then the pollution control board’s approval might be needed. The requirements are set by the Bureau of Indian Standards for a dairy farm. These consist of the following:

BIS IS 11799:1986 (R2002): For Cattle Housing in Rural Areas

BIS IS 11942:1986 (R2002): For Gaushalas and Other Organized Milk Producers

BIS IS 12237:1987 (Reaffirmed 2004): For a loose housing system for animals

Other considerations for a businessman include:

Create a business plan that includes the following elements: mission, vision, location, land, cattle vaccination, shed, food, and equipment.

Cattle breeding and selection you can choose from popular buffalo breeds such as Murrah, Mehsani, Surti, and others.

Jaffarabadi or milch breeds such as Gir, Tharparkar, and Sahiwal are a few examples.

If you need a loan, you can get a government subsidy through the Dairy Entrepreneurship Development Scheme, which is run by the National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD).
