DAIRY FARMS

Dairy farming is a stabilizing enterprises in Agriculture . The enterprise ensures adequate cash flow for the farm on a monthly basis. The main constraint   is the long hours and commitment. Weekends and holidays are never one's own because cows have to be attended to at least twice a day. Marketing of fresh milk is competitive,   therefore, in recent times, farmers have expanded their operation to add value to their dairy products.  Small factories are being established to produce butter, cheese, yoghurt , ice cream and other value added dairy products.
Dairy is usually included in a mixed farm, in combination with fruit farming, wine farming, small grains and vegetable farming . Jersey, Friesland, Guernsey are the main breeds used for milk production. Various types of dairy systems are used ,namely extensive, in which the cows are allowed to graze extensively on dry land pastures.
Extensive systems
The extensive  system is a low-cost input system with low production and low risk. Extensive systems ,are usually done on  planted irrigated pasture, together with supplementary feeding in the form of balanced rations. The latter appears to be the most successful. It has low risk and relatively high returns.
Intensive system
The  intensive system, where no pastures are included is losing favour, but realizes  high production, high value concentrates and high gross returns at the expense of lower and riskier net returns. In the latter system the cows tend to mature earlier and have to be culled earlier.  The average milking cow can give milk for seven lactations and during that period can give on average of four female calves, which will later be included in the herd or sold as stud heifers to other dairy farmers. A very intensive system shortens the lactation of cows to 3 or 4 years
