# Dairy Farm Cost Calculator

## What is Dairy Farm Cost Calculator?

A dairy farm cost calculator is a tool that allows you to estimate the costs associated with operating a dairy farm.

To calculate the cost of operating a dairy farm, you will need to gather information about your farm, including the number of cows, the size of the farm, and the type of housing and feeding systems you have in place.

You will also need to know the cost of inputs such as feed, bedding, and veterinary care.

We have used the following formula to calculate the total cost of operating your dairy farm:

**totalCost** = (numCows * (feedCost + beddingCost + vetCost)) + (farmSize * 15)

This formula takes into account the number of cows on the farm, the cost of feed, bedding, and veterinary care per cow per year, and the size of the farm in acres.

It calculates the total cost of feed, bedding, and veterinary care by multiplying the number of cows by the cost per cow per year for each of these inputs.

It then adds in an additional cost of $15 per acre to account for other costs associated with operating the farm, such as labor and maintenance.
