A pregnant dairy heifer costs R12 000 (approx US$1565). After calving the heifer would easily produce an average of 10 litres of protein and calcium rich milk per day. The sale of milk as a source of income is very viable with a cow. The cost covers the purchase of the heifer and a portion of the cost of training the family.

Not a Cup, but a cowHurray for heifers- that’s a female cow that has not yet given birth to a calf. A quality dairy cow can produce four gallons of milk a day- enough for a family to drink, share with neighbours and sell for cash. The sale of surplus milk earns money for school fees, medicine, clothing and home improvements.
