Completely information on Dairy Project Report on Gir cattle and how beneficial it is to domesticate Gir cattle for your dairy business. Let us know about the Gir cattle.

The Gir cattle cows are well known for their milking prowess and have an indigenous from Indian origin. The females weigh about 848.78 pounds with a height of 4.26 feet whereas males weigh about 1201.5 pounds with a height of 4.42 feet. Their average milk yield is about 1590 kg per lactation. Gir cows are highly fertile and calve regularly.

Dairy project for 4 cows:

  1. One acre of land is an important prerequisite.
  2. As we are talking about 4 cows, cost of labor is not taken into consideration as a family labor will be efficient enough for the maintenance of the dairy farm.
  3. Gir cows are very social and so it is not difficult to handle them. They can be fed with dry fodder, green jowar, bajra, groundnut cake. For this, fodder can be cultivated in the land area of one acre and two crops can be considered per year.
  4. For manure during fodder cultivation, cow dung can be of great importance.
  5. Cost of rearing calves is not considered here as it will be nullified by their sale value.
  6. In case of the death of the cow, a new cow can be purchased from insurance claim money.


Housing for cows:

  1. Floor should be strong concrete, well cemented and impervious to moisture and have a single slope towards the gutter. Plinth should be 2 feet higher than ground.
  2. Walls should be 3 feet tall and made up of brick.
  3. Roof should be 16-18 feet high at the center and 8 feet high on the side wall. There should be a 3 feet hangover beyond the wall to prevent the rain water getting in the cow shade. In low cost housing, cemented roofs can be replaced by tile thatched roof.

Standing place – 1.5M
Gutter – 0.4M
Feeding passage – 1.2M
