If you are a person outside of Rajasthan then you have to go by yourself to select one. You have to keep in mind that mostly you get a healthy animal direct from a person, not the big farms. 

So keep in mind and make sure the guarantee of finding such a person who has not more than 5 Tharparkar cows. A limited number of cows provide you with a clear idea to select a healthy animal.

Is Tharparkar profitable in the Dairy farming business?

Yes! of course. Tharparkar cows are profitable in the dairy farming business. One of the major reasons is their feeding and immunity in odd conditions. Even after living in too hot and cold conditions, the Tharparkar cows produce enough milk in average feed and care. They can give positive results in less green fodder and don't get sick or fever easily.

Tharparkar cows are used to the high temperature(up to 45 degrees Celcius) and low temperature to 0 degrees Celcius. 

In India, 45 degrees Celcius is the highest temperature, and -5 degrees Celcius is the lower temperature.

In 80% of the Indian states, temperature varies between the above-mentioned limit. It means climate conditions are ordinary for Tharparkar cows as they are used to odd climate conditions.
