Transcript of Mathematics of Dairy Farming

Economics of Dairy Farming How many cows do you need to make profit?

As many cows as you can feed and milk. we milk 150 cows. Some people milk 30 ro 40 cows, and some milk thousands of cows. In the last 10 years has ther ben more or less profit in diary farming?

Ok, 3 to 4 years ago it was $11 per 100 and that was tough. Now its $15 per 100. It changes every 2 to 3 years. Does dairy farming have same trend as the economy does?

No, the middle man which is the goverment makes the most money. You make more profit when the goverment raises the price of milk. But then the price of fertilizar and feed corn then your profit goes back down to what it was before. Does milk prices change when the seasons change?

It is stedy all year long but you make more money in the fall when you sell your corn. Does buying better equipment help save money and get you more profit in the long run?

we just bought a new used tractor for $165,000. We traded in a old tractor for $65,00. So we have to pay off $100,000 over 5 years with %4.5 interest. The tracter we traded in was a "95 and we want to keep out new one for 10 year. So after five years we will have $20,000 more in profit. We buy new tractors so we dont have to spend money to fix and repair it. Every three years we buy a new skid steer. Them are $30,000 new and on a trade in you get $15,000.
