Karkala, 06 Aug 2017: At the prevailing times of farmers finding it difficult to sustain life out of farming; a few farmers found success in dairy farming by earning substantial profit. Here is the success story of a dairy farmer who found success.


Ravi Prakash Cutinho, a native of Jantra, near Belman, here, gave up his Gulf job, to be engaged in dairy farming and found it profitable.


He has transformed the landscape of 5-acre hillock, near Jantra, here. He has been engaged in dairy farming by rearing cows in a hi-tech cow-shed since the past 4 years; thereby created hope for farmers who shun dairy farming. He was interested in farming since his childhood and was employed in Gulf for many years. He had returned from Gulf for good and fully engaged in dairy farming that he had set up in a hillock, near Jantra, here.



Hi-tech cow-farm

He has set up hi-tech cow-shed in a rural village to rear cows. He has also installed fans in the shed for the comfort of cows to bear the soaring temperatures especially during peak summer. He operates dry/wet vacuum cleaner to maintain cleanliness in the shed. He has shedder to cut the grass into bits to feed the cows. He has indeed created hope for other small-time dairy farmers by his enterprising methods in this rural village. He found it profitable also.


Ravi has 25 cows in his shed that yields him 120 liters of milk per day. He earns about Rs 50,000 per month out of dairy farming.








Diversified into plantation along with dairy farming

He also rears 16 goats in his hi-tech cow-shed.  He has grown 700 areca plants and 40 palms, besides grows high breed grass in patches of land in his 5-acres plot that has grown lush, by using effluents from the same cow-shed.


‘Dairy farming is much profitable, if one fully engaged in this trade. I am much happier to be engaged in dairy farming in my native village than working in Gulf,’ says enterprising dairy farmer Ravi.


Not ventured to earn profit

‘I had no intentions to earn profit, whilst I ventured into dairy farming 4 years ago. I was fond of cattle in my childhood and interested in dairy farming that is fulfilling emotionally. It’s profitable, if one fully devotes,’ says Ravi.


Ravi has set an example to other farmers, by rearing 25 cows in his hi-tech farm at a remote village, by giving up Gulf job at a time when dairy farmers are shunning the trade. He had proved that one can earn same salary of Gulf job per month by fully engaged in dairy farming.


‘I was interested in dairy farming since my childhood. I followed my passion of dairy farming by giving up Gulf job and found success too in earning good profits. Furthermore, I am much happier than earlier, says contented Ravi.
