Rathi cow milk per day

Most of the dairy milk farmers leave Rathi cows dry before lactation to give them enough rest. 

Most of the time, the Rathi cow produces 16 to 22 liters of milk daily till her first 45 days of lactation. Later they reduce it and produce 15 to 18 liters of milk daily. 

But one thing that is noticeable here about Rathi cows, is that they keep consistent with their milk production and don't get ill during lactation mostly.

Local deshi breeds cost in the range between 50,000 to 90,000 INR like Sahiwal, Tharparkar, Gir, and many more cow breeds. Rathi cows cost you less than average among all the deshi cow breeds.

In India, people can buy Rathi cows in price between 45000 to 60000 INR in specific places. 

Where to buy Rathi cows?

Local Indian cow breeds are so underrated for dairy farming, especially Rathi cow.

The best place to buy Rathi cows is their first birth region, that is Rajasthan. 

It is not certain that you will get the best quality of Rathi cows everywhere in Rajasthan but surely you will get varieties there. 

If you don't want to get looted or fraud then checkout local dairy farms of Rathi cows and then identify them properly or write if necessary. 

Local markets of Rathi cows are not that much-promised towards the quality of the breed. So buy them from individuals.

Can Rathi cow survive in too cold or hot seasons?

Yes. Rathi cow can survive in too cold or hot seasons. They don't get panic or ill during season change. 

Although Foreign cow breeds produce more milk than local deshi cows, their overall profit left almost the same as the overall profit on pure deshi cows. Most of the investment costs are in the arrangement of proper atmospheric conditions in winters and summers, their quality of feed, and space. 

In the case of local deshi Rathi cows, they can live in the hot weather of Rajasthan and cold weather like Uttrakhand without any special care or treatment. Their immunity is enough to survive basic fever and season change.
