Mohan,

I mean production costs anywhere from 14-17 Rs per liter. Basic needs of a lactating HF cow is 30-35 kgs green fodder, 6-8 kgs Dry fodder and 3-6 Kgs of concentrate mix.

Concentrate feed costs about 13 rs/kg. The cost of green and dry fodder varies on where you are located. Typically, .5 rs per kg for green fodder and 2 Rs per kg for dry fodder.

Also note that on average HF cows yield about 4500-5000 lts of milk per lactation in 300 days. so effectively 15 ltrs a day. Now if you consider onset on next calving in 150 days 4500/450 = 10 ltrs per day in one full cycle i.e calf to calf. So run your number based on 450 days and not 300 days (usual mistake made by a lot)

You can grow your own greens if you have land. Thumb rule is 1 acre for every 5 cows.
