The local machine work for 2-3 cows if you have 10-20 cows they will do but for larger hard, you need a good machine with good maintenance service. Once you have high producing cows you need to milk 3 times then you need but milk cooler. If you go for proper milk marketing then milk packing machine is necessary.
Without land, we can go for dairying by growing hydroponic fodder. In this process from one kg grains, you can harvest eight kg of fodder in 8 days. What you need is water, pH and continuous supply of light and trays. No fertilizer or soil is needed.
The pH should be 6.0 to 6.5 humility by 60 to 65 and temp 20° to 25°C temperature and humility is critical the temperature and humidity restrict the growth. First, you soul the 20 kg seed of bajra wheal or burly for 12 hours. To restrict the growth of fungus, add DOMAX in water it will be easily available in the market.
After 24 hours take out the seed and keep then wrap in cloth for 24 hours at a warm place. You need a tray with a hole in the bottom of the size of 2*3 feet and 3 inch high. Spread seeds in keeping tray and light as shown in picture provide water by sprinkler contentiously. The fodder will come up in 8 days.
