What is Dairy Farming?

Post by khandairies on Thu Sep 17, 2009 8:59 pm

Dairy farming is a class of agricultural, or an animal husbandry, enterprise, for long-term production of milk, usually from dairy cows but also from goats and sheep, which may be either processed on-site or transported to a dairy factory for processing and eventual retail sale.

Most dairy farms sell the male calves born by their animals, usually for veal production, or breeding depending on quality of the bull calf, rather than raising non-milk-producing stock.Many dairy farms also grow their own feed, typically including corn, alfalfa, and hay. This is fed directly to the animals, or is stored as silage for use during the winter season. Additional dietary supplements are added to the feed to increase quality milk production.
