I have had luck with raising cattle so far. I am hoping to get bigger and my father has a stantion barn that is not being used. It does not do well with calves in it so it sits empty. The way I am pushing the numbers I could make a pretty good living on raising 75 to 85 calves at a time (600 a year), assuming nothing goes wrong. I have already went through the feed guy about a breakdown of breakeven cost and start-up cost. i was just wondering what everyone thought if i would turn the stancion barn into a little milking operation with 10 cows for waste milk for the calves. i get waste milk from a local dairy right now, but it is not always in supply and the boost in numbers would not allow it to be enough. Wondering what everyone thinks? Is it worth looking into?
