A note on the profitability of dairy farms in selected areas of Bangladesh : a comparison with New Zealand dairy farms
This study determines the profitability of commercial mini-dairy farms in selected areas of Bangladesh using New Zealand financial and production figures as benchmarks. Based on production returns Bangladeshi (BD) dairy farms do not appear to be particularly profitable in spite of the relatively high domestic milkprice. To be a truly profitable venture, it is suggested that BD dairy farms should aim at improving their productivity through the use of improved breeds, feeding, health care and management.
