´╗┐In calf fattening business, calves are raised on nutritionally balanced feed to get targeted weight gain in a specified time. These calves are grown in groups and each batch stays on farm for a period of 90 days. The expected live body weight gain ranges between 700 - 850 grams / day. Higher yields are achievable with better farm management, and by selecting better quality breeds.

Calves are raised in rural and semi-urban areas and sold in urban markets normally in livestock markets (Mandies). A farm of 800 calves (200 Calves / batch) per annum is suggested in this pre-feasibility study; however, farm will start its production at its full capacity from day one.

An estimated investment of Rs 20.85 million is required, out of which capital investment is Rs. 6.10 million and working capital is Rs. 14.75 million. The Internal Rate of Return (IRR), Net Present Value (NPV) & Payback Period of the project are 28%, Rs. 11.83 million and 4.22 years respectively. The project is proposed to operate as a sole-proprietorship.
