Dairy Farming in Pakistan

Dairy Farming Guide by MomekhSerious about Dairy Farming? Then you may find The Dairy Farming Guide by Momekh to be useful. I wrote this because a lot of dairy farms get their tactics right, but fail due to bad strategy (i.e. bad mindset of the owner). Click here to know more.


As with everything else on this site, 99% of the information is free. Please feel free to browse around and learn as much as you can. Many of the tactics can be learnt.


Some of the questions asked here have been answered on this page: Dairy Farming Questions Answered.


Welcome to the Dairy Farming Section.

I love simplicity. And I will try to keep this simple.

Dairy farming business can be divided into three main systems. Each system will have its very own set of processes, milestones and benchmarks. Dividing a project into smaller projects (or systems) helps you focus on each, without feeling overwhelmed. In dairy farming especially, it is very easy to become overwhelmed. Hopefully, not here.

These three systems are:

  1. The Environment: This is the environment of the animals and how you, as a dairy farm owner, plan to manage it. Cooling of the shed etc. Click Here to read more on The Environment of your dairy farm.
  2. Ration / Feed: What are you feeding the animals, and how are you procuring and growing that feed.
  3. Breed Management: Includes the health of the animals. Also includes your own benchmarks of the type of breeds that you want to introduce in your farm. This is one of the most overlooked aspect of any dairy farm.

All three of these systems are equally important and your dairy farm will have a higher chance of success if you get these three systems right.

As more content (articles, videos, interviews, books etc) gets introduced in this section, the content will be categorized according to these three systems.

Goes without saying, basic systems such as accounting, human resource management etc are not unique to dairy farming. Advice on setting up these basic business systems can readily be found on the Internet, and besides, business systems are usually a result of the business owners’ personal requirement (and sometimes ‘taste’). Interested in how I set up my business systems, then check out the Starta post to get an idea.

List of Resources for Your Dairy Farm:

  • Basics of Silage Preparation? Check out this page.

I have inshAllah planned to put up a lot of resources, and linking to them from this page.

Milk Distribution Case StudyHow to start your own Milk Brand? I started a milk distribution business before I started dairy farming. Alhumdulillah, that milk distribution business was profitable in the first month. I have written a detailed case study on starting a successful milk distribution, and how you can start a milk brand yourself. To read more / purchase, click here.

As you can see, this page is a work in progress. I suggest you subscribe to Life ETC for future updates on dairy farming, and how to be a better entrepreneur.

  1. I need some contacts (references) of contractors for cow shed construction in Lahore. Could any one please help.
    If some can suggest where I can buy needed materials, that will also help. Thanks.

  2. Dear brothers and sisters,

    A few years ago I got inspired by the “success” stories of Mr. Momekh and other farming enthusiasts and decided to jump into the field of dairy farming myself. I have been in this business for over 2 years now and have invested millions and millions of rupees into it.

    We started out developing a 200 kanal piece of raw land in district Attock, Punjab, and eventually after a year or so had reached the point where we were procuring Holstein-Friesian and Jersey cows (pregnant heifers to be precise) and lining up large/bulk buyers of cow’s milk. Every process was carried out professionally, our farm was setup correctly, we got very good animals and we were quite excited about this new venture.

    Unfortunately, after 2 years of being in this game, I can very confidently say that producing and selling milk is not really a profitable line of business. Too too many factors affect and disturb the performance and milk yield of livestock, especially the sudden outbreaks of disease and the extremes of weather. There are numerous problems lurking in the background all the time, which surface at the worst moment possible, leaving you helpless and defeated. Mortality of calves is very common and is a great setback. It is mentally and physically exhausting work that has very little or no reward at all. Feeding costs are tremendous and constitute atleast 60-70% of your total expenditure. Feeding costs are steadily rising with time, much faster than the price of milk is rising. Prices of feeding inputs such as fodder, silage, straw, hay, vanda, concentrates etc are inflating by 10-15% per year, whereas the farm gate price of milk is increasing by only 5% per year.

    Believe me, we have still not made any profit from this business even after two years of hard work! Its not even a matter of small or large scale. I have personally seen the Profit & Loss statements of several modern mega dairy farms in Punjab that have 2,000-5,000 cows, yet are not making any substantial income or profit for their owners, and some of them are even in a net loss.

    My advice to anyone deciding to get into this field is to please STOP immediately! Dont even think about it! Invest your hard-earned money in any other business, but not this one. I guarantee that you will highly regret investing your capital, resources, time and energy into dairy farming business in Pakistan.

    Best wishes,


    1. ASA. Dear brother i am from Attock and i was just about to jump into dairy farming and your this advice stopping me.

  12. My name is Omer, And I am intending to start a dairy farm in the outskirts of Karachi in Janruary- February 2014, Inshallah.
    I have worked out a feasibility for the farm of 20 buffallows. assuming that the animal will give at least a minimum of 10 liters per day and having a lactation period of 270 days.
    I have assumed that I will be able to purchase the animals for 230,000 each. Is this correct???
    Further after a lot of research I am intending to setup a corn silage in which I can store atleast a full year fodder for the 20 animals.
    Can anybody please help me in the silage issue???? As I dont know what quantity will I be needing for my herd.

    Further can u please also tell me if its better to use buffallow of cows for dairy purpose???

    I dont have any dairy farming experience , but I have some experience in buying and selling cows at the time of EID, where I purchased 82 heavy animals and sold them in the VIP block of Sorabhgoth Mawaishi Mandi KArachi.

  16. Dear All


    What is the prospect of establishing dairy farm in Chakwal region. The major issue there is that of water. Besides this the current electricity situation may require some alternate setup; most probably mid scale solar energy system. Although there are small dams but lifting water to a upper level is a costly affair.

    Any body from this region having fair idea of this business keeping in view the climatic and logistic conditions. Best thing is the motor way which is approachable from my native town Balkassar where we have got huge bunch of land (cultivated as well as banjar)

    Anybody’s guidance will help in thinking of starting this proposition.


    {phone number edited — please don’t paste phone numbers here)

    1. There are quite a few from Chakwal here… don’t know if they are reading this message though.
      Alt energy is a must by the way.
      Solar systems for dairy farms is a topic in itself, that is why I am working on a new information portal (you can see it here — I am adding content to it nowadays). But I hope that it helps. You can ask questions there on relevant articles related to solar.
      Other than that, I welcome you to LifeETC by Momekh… do join the community for updates regarding creative self employment and living a life of adventure (if that’s your thing 🙂 )

  17. Salam to all brothers and sisters,
    I am glad to be here and read about dairy farming as i am a fan of this
    I am a pakistani leving in Greece for the last 15 yars.
    As all Pakistanies leaving abroad my dream is to return back and smell
    “apne watan ki mitti ko” and could establish a profitable bussines which
    could be no other than Dairy Farming.
    Can any one suggest me where i could find good mix breed animals
    and how much will it cost me about 20 cows ?
    I own Land , tube well, can make a good shed, if any one is interested
    to come to my place to cooparate is most well come or I could invest in someones already running bussines.
    my e-mail is : alirafaqat70@yahoo.com
    I leave in Greece – Athenes
    My back ground : Pakistan,Gujrat,Kharian

  18. I need some contacts (references) of contractors for cow shed construction in Lahore. Could any one please help.
    If some can suggest where I can buy needed materials, that will also help. Thanks.

  19. Hi Momekh,
    Hope you are doing well, and have lovely holidays. I wanted to ask you about selling price of fresh milk these days…and what is the payment mechanism

    1. Selling price of milk depends whom you’re selling to. Sell to Nestle etc is the worst price (I currently sell to Nestle btw). Selling directly to the consumer is the best price.

      As luck would have it, by God’s Grace, I sell to both.

      My dairy farm’s milk is currently being sold to Nestle. I am also selling milk in Lahore after buying from a trustworthy, hard-to-find contractor. Price difference is significant.

      One thing to note: starting a dairy farm and selling milk directly to consumer ARE TWO SEPARATE BUSINESSES.

      If you are starting a dairy farm, I suggest you pick the low-hanging fruit (of selling to Nestle or other large buyer of milk). If you want to set up a marketing and distribution setup, I suggest you prepare yourself to start another business. Do not consider “selling milk to homes” as an extension of the dairy farm, think of it as a COMPLETELY SEPARATE business. It will help God willing. 🙂

    2. Thank you Momekh, I want to sell to Companies like Nestle and etc. I wanted to know normal how much do Nestle pays and how is payment terms and proceedure…regards wasif ali

    3. The rates vary!
      Depends on the region. Also, depends on your volume of milk. You have to check from your local area.
      Nowadays, I hear Nestle is playing tough (they don’t need as much milk). But I am never in favor of starting a dairy farm depending solely on Nestle.
      Hope this helps.

  20. Assalamu Alaikum Warehmatulah!
    Brother Momekh,
    How are you? How your dairy farm is progressing? What is added in your learning in the recent monts?
    I am a bit interested in the business.

  21. Asalam o alekum

    I m reviewing your blog since last weak, and found that it is very informative and give lot of ideas about dairy firming. Great work.

    I m having some questions related dairy farming.

    Q1- Why Not Buffalo (is there any harm in Buffalo farming, although the quality of milk is better than Cow?)

    Q2- In Some areas in pakistan like (Rahim yar khan, Sadiqabad and surrounding people interested in more buffalo milk then cow milk. What you suggest)?

    Q3- This Question Confused me a lot. Lactation period of Buffalo and milk yielding per day? ( People having buffalo claims that they are get 18 to 22+ milk liter per day, But the reports on the internet ..i search a lot about this that buffalo produce 8 to 12 liter milk per day ) so kindly explain this senario.

    Q4- Can buffalo cross breed by Cow? (like Buffalo is Nil Ravi and Male Cow is Sahiwal full breed or Fresian… just as an examples).

    Q4- Need Suggestion over open a dairy firm of cow is better or Buffalo? in the areas of Rahimyar khan surroundings?

    Q5- Any ideas of cost of good quality of buffalo whose per day yielding is 12 to 15 litre ?

    I would love to see your respond or anyone who knows about that is highly appreciated.

    Waiting for your response.

    Thanks & Kind Regards.

  22. i am running a small dairy farm in karachi bhains colony landhi i have catteles i want to know abbout theair fed for more milk ,any one help me

  23. Rana bhai
    Which Department of Punjab Government is giving practical training, where the training center is located.
    Ghazanfar Ali

  24. guys do not start farming unless
    you people are strong
    , consistant
    Do not buy australian cows anymore they are no good.

    have all the time to spent on herd management.
    im waiting for the ban to lift from importing australian cows.
    25 cows X 425000
    construction for 50 cows X 100000
    almost 525000 per cow

    Annual average 25 ltr per cow
    All costs equal to 15 ltr per cow
    profit 10 ltr per cow.

    some cows will give 30 Plus ltr even it can touch 40 plus in winter but after overall your herd annual average per cow per day will be 25 Ltr.

    First year it will be good
    second year it will go down.
    they will adapt soon
    3rd year it will gain good results

    4.fooder………………all year the the fodder mix should be same……if u change milk production will suffer.
    5.taking care of udders.

    there are so many things.
    Practical training is being given by punjab government.

  26. As Salamu Alaikum wa Rehmatulahi wa Barakatuhu

    I live in Karachi, can this Dairy Farming business be started in Karachi, or is it meant for village/open fields area only?

    1. In the city itself will probably be not allowed. But on the peripheries, yes.

      Most milk in big cities comes from semi-urban dairy farms.

  27. Dear Mohammad

    Thank u very much for ur response!

    Could u share the contact info of “the gentleman sitting on the stage” ?? I understand that u recommend him?
    And can we visit ur farm? Since it is not a huge one it would be the best example for us. If possible kindly share the address.


  28. Slam to All my friends,
    i’m 1 of those who appreciated this approach of momekh bro on very early days of this blog about 1 year ago, i’m interested, 🙂 since i was very young as my granfather used to lov animals hence me too 🙂 …. im very found of this business not only for money but also passion about havin animals…coming to main point due to some reasons i cud not return bak to pakistan as im here in spain.but my brother will help me to establish dairy farm in pakistan(he is also spanish resident ).we have done some farcasting about it Alhamdulillah land is not a problem but we ve some variable data which can change the results of farcasting in uncertainty i want to kno whether it is fair or not
    plz if any1 of you have recent experiences than share with us
    1.what estimated cost would be per cow that can produce 15 litres per time(2 times 30 lts)we can INSHALLAH provide excellent enviroment.
    2. at what price we can sell milk per litr to nestle or any company ???and what is the process of selling them milk,like whether they would come to dairy or we should go to them
    Thanks 🙂

  29. Dear Experts & Mohammad
    Could u plz recommend the right place to get good cross breed cows? And the estimated cost?
    If am right, the gentleman sitting on the stage that meet up day is a breeder, is he? Does he provide animals to humble beginners or just to Bigwigs?
    Do u recommend selling milk to Nestle’ in the settling phase of the farm? It would save time & efforts to develop one’s own clientele, i mean till the time we get settle with the animals. Once we get over this phase we can focus to develop our own customer pipeline??

    Your feedback will make things easy.

    1. Yes Amna, the gentleman sitting on the stage does provide for ‘humble’ beginners too 🙂

      I do recommend selling to nestle (or any other milk procurement/marketing company), especially initially.

      For two reasons: when you’re starting a farm, it involves a lot of systems. “SELLING” your milk is a system too. Giving it to nestle just makes it easier for you to focus on milk production.

      Second, to “SELL” milk you need to think of it is as a different business altogether! Dairy Farm is primarily milk production, selling milk is a marketing field. So if you start selling your own milk, you increase your dairy’s complexity.

  30. Me intend to build a new dairy farm in which the prime focus is to build a shed for cows. We have the required land under our own ownership & also have 3 Lakhs to build the same; however, we need the money to purchase cows. We have decided that whoever will purchase for us 20 Australian cows, we’ll repay him the lump sum within two years on monthly installments of 50,000 & will also make him our 50% partner in our farm business.We’ll look after the farm ourselves. Whoever will get us 20 cows bought, we’ll give him a cheque as a testimony ,equal to the cost spent on cows’ purchase. We’ll also write an agreement affidevit stating the 50% partnership of the one giving us loan since we dont want to get interest based loans from banks. We belive in pure business, free of any interest on loans that may spoil our good deeds. If any further agreement or proof is required in this regard,we are ready to serve for the same. We live in district Gujranwala village ‘Nounikey’ where our property is located & we desire to build our farm there. Pls advise us further in this regard. Looking forward for your swift response. Regards

    1. dear Hassan Bhai,

    Your help will be much appreciated.

    1. I am kamran and i am also working to establish dairy farms near faisalabad and islamabad.
      What details do you want.

    2. Dear Kamran,
      I am wanted to know about payment terms and milk pricing formula.
      Wasif Ali

    3. Dear Muhammad Sajiid,

      I’m also pakistani living & running my business in kuwait.i would like to start my dairy business in pakistan.i’m near to abbottabad & i would like to start in our land.we have a nice place for this business.
      I love dairy farming

  32. I think I manage to find all answeres about dairy farming here except where to supply the milk in bulk in district rawalpindi area and if any body knows what is current rate is the moment. I am keen to visit a running farm in gujarkhan surounding area if anybody can help me please


    1. hi Danielle Ali Shah,

      I read ur post and was surprised to find out that you are setting up a dairy farm close to Fatehjang, I am also in the process of setting up a commercial dairy farm in the surroundings of Fatehjang but I would like to advise you that pay special attention to the location that you choose as we have major water issues in our area as we are reliant on rainfall there is no irrigation system such as canals etc and there is certain areas where the underground water is very scarce where as in certain areas it is plentiful.

      Also for buying animals you will have to head towards southern punjab as our local breed known as “Dhani” is a very muscular breed typically known for racing bulls and has hardly any milk!!

      although temperature wise our area is much more suitable compared to the southern part as the temperature at this end is relatively better and imported animals produce better results!!

      Good luck with your project!!

    2. Wa aliekum salaam Sardar, and i am comforted to know we are not the only crazy people in the area! Are you from Fateh Jhang? We bought land last year next to Shahpur Dam, and have just organised the water to be pumped from the Dam. InshAllah now water will be less of a problem… our wheat crop was very sad due to lack of water. We sunk two bores but they yield only about half an hour of water total and very salty.

      What kind of cows are you using in your dairy? LOL I have seen those racing bulls – I have NEVER heard anything like it in my life, but this is Pakistan – anything can happen!! We dont have any cows at all yet – planning inshAllah later this year to start that part. In the mean time have been working with chickens.

      Good to be in touch and look forward to hearing more about your venture.


    3. yes I am from the area my farmlands are about 12 kms past shahpur dam on khaur road currently I am installing sprinkler systems, increasing my water sources small dams,wells and bores etc trying to establish a self sustained organic dairy farm!! as for the cows once the sheds are made I will be importing crossbreds from Australia. my email is sardaraamir@gmail.com do stay in touch.

  33. dear, i want to start this dairy farm business with atleast 10 cows, i would like someone to help me with it. i would appreciate, this is my first time putting my hand in this business, i hope Allah helps me. my email is given wackhj@gmail.com

    i am from karachi.

    1. AOA , have you started up the business? want to know about your experience.. as i am at the stage where you were in 2012,

  34. Aslamoaliakam to all of you I am living in uk at the moment but I am planing to settle in pakistan and start a dairy farm on small scale. I dont have much cash and also i have got land about 20 kanal with 3 rooms in my village. Fresh water is problem in this land because land 15 to 20 deep surface is hard (sand type stone). But around the land land a seasonal stream runs, can I stop that water with small dame wall and use that for farm. My land is in gujarkhan area. I am still confuse about silage and feed. Please can u guide me, do I need lots of water to grow crop for silage
    ecause in my area normaly people rely on rain water. Please cansome give me

    1. Please can someone tell me how much money do I need to start a farm with 100,lt milk production. Can i buy silage from market if yes then sort of price. I am planing to visit pakistan very soon, can meet some experts running farms in suroundings of gujarkhan and rawalpindi

    2. Assalam Wa Alaikum
      I am currently residing in the UK, like yourself. I also have an interest in dairy farming in pakistan. Maybe we can exchange emails and discuss the pro’s and con’s of such an enterprise.
      Abdul wahid

    3. i also want to start this busniess and want to discuss som we need your contact of mr jabbar mahmood so plz contact us by mail or give your contact number

  35. ASA,

    Finally i sign for a piece of land and started basic required work of construction, as i am interior designer and have construction experience of years i am trying to manage better structure and environment in low cost.

    I plan for breed management farm for the first 2 years and develop cross breed herd at better feed, environment and special take care… After so many calculations plus, minus, multiplications and meeting so many peoples in the field and Out from field, motivation and demoralized. I decide finally to go with breed management but not for milking till next year.

    So please pray for me…

    1. Inshallah brother we’ll pray for u and Allah Helps Those who helps themselves
      looking forward to heare soon from u
      good luck

  36. I am considering to start dairy business. Can anyone give me tips on buying animals (as what to look for and how to confirm what the sellers claim about their animals)and also some useful contacts

    1. Thanks for ur reply shahzad. No it is in initial stages but reason i asked the question was to prepare myself as two locals have approached me to sell their animal and they claim it is cross breed but i felt lost in how to confirm it..however i should be ready to buy Insha Allah in two months but i take ur point i will buy the animal when my place is ready.

  37. Salaam all. I have just found your site and am very excited. I am an Australian woman, married to a Pakistani and living in Rawalpindi (I am an agriculturalist in Australia, but a writer and e-Learning facilitator here). We have recently bought a farm near Fateh Jhang and are planning to build a dairy business. I will inshAllah buy your guide Momekh bhai, but can I ask… do you have any contacts in our area? We have been to a few cattle sales, and hear that there is a huge amount of fraud going on about how productive the cows are. Also i am keen to go with Sahiwals… anyone had any experience with them?

    Great to meet you all and look forward to your advice!

    1. Wasalaams Danielle!

      The fields you mention; agriculturalist, writer and an e-learning facilitator – are way too interesting for me! 🙂 I welcome you to the LifeETC community.

      Thank you for your support and I’d love to hear your feedback on the Dairy Farming Guide (DFG) once you’ve read it – especially given your agriculturalist background, I’d love some feedback from you! 🙂

      And there are quite a few LifeETC community members – entrepreneurs who are operating a dairy farm in or near Rawalpindi. God willing, you are in good company.

      The LifETC community is having a meetup in Lahore, more than a 100 people have registered, with a few coming from Islamabad/Rawalpindi as well. Read more about the meetup here. I look forward to meet you (and your family) at the event too! All the best, sister, and God bless!

    2. Al Hamdulillah… seems like good company to be in. My mind is already ticking over about collaborative projects with eLearning courses in dairy farming (I write courses too!) I have also attached my blog – very neglected due to toooo much going on in my life MashAllah. Home schooling my kids these days as well, due to my frustrations with the education system here that focuses on creating zombies rather than learners.
      Unfortunately it is not likely that I will make it to Lahore for your meeting, but I am very keen to hear the outcomes. Also do feel free to contact me directly if you think of any great strategies we can co-conspire on!

      Asalaam aleikum,

    2. Thank you Shahzad for your input. I hear you are quite the expert in procuring good quality animals! 🙂

      And I am looking forward to seeing you at the meet up bhai saab 🙂

  39. Dear all, it is my pleasure to inform you that my visit to Narowal was a boomoing success wherein I was able to purchase 8 pure breed pehlans and one dojan that too pure breed. All in all coasted me on avg 130000 each. 5 are with wachis and 4 wachey…. 🙂 May Allah bless them. 40 villages in three days, my back and car both cracked, but all well as it ended well 🙂

    1. hahahaha…car and back, both? 🙂 ایسا ہوتا ہے ایسے کاموں میں

      And the news on the good purchases (130,000 is definitely a good price) is awesome news Adil. MashAllah. Here’s hoping and praying that they do well in your farm! 🙂

  40. Thank you for your wise Input there Babar. I can assure you that I am keeping all the mentioned aspects in my mind as Momekh said so 🙂 . Healthy environment leads to healthy animals who in turns give optimum resulting in likewise profits. Fabric shed well I considered but they don’t serve the purpose in the extreme cold weather of Central and northern Punjab, Kpk and Balochistan as well.
    Looking forward to hear from you and put us wise

  41. Dear Adil,
    its important before construction you will work theoretically, and collect all possible data.
    WE all here on this forum basically work for betterment of Dairy farming not only to count money at the end, not only we have improve structure quality, durability, low cost, but even we must see the environmental impact ,how neat clean, air ventilation, water fog generator nozzles in summer, energy saving must be consider in construction methods, If all same phatatic dark,unclean , smelly, non comfortable environment constructed definit this will impact to animals and reduce the quality and quantity.

    This Sunday i visit dairy exhibition in Karachi expo where i find shading fabric to cover the shed rather than thinking of cane roof. I got a piece of meters for doing experiment over it.

    So again…… Think wisely!

    1. That is the essence and very well put Babar. We are looking for a wholesome deal.
      I think Adil have considered that too.

      I wish us all the best 🙂
