How to Calculate Gir Cow Price?
My Story – Kiran Kulkarni
Gir Cow Price! …
“Please Gagarubhai, reduce the final cost for the gir cow. Same kind of gir cow with Gopalbhai is less. I think you are asking 15,000 to 20,000 more than the actual market price” said Kiran
“Kiranbhai, the Gir cow you have selected is 2nd lactation & from the best gir cow Geetanjali & produces minimum 12 litres milk/day. The price I have offered is the best possible. Trust me” replied Gagarubhai.
Above discussions are my regular experiences which I keep coming across during my search for my favourite gir cow breed. I am a gir farm owner. Have started recently the farm & have around 8 gir cows. I have the dream of making a successful 50 gir cow farm. So, I keep searching for good gir cows & try to negotiate with the sellers.
But buying gir cow at the right price is a very challenging process. Every time I feel confused & helpless, do not understand whether the price quoted is right or high.
Sometimes I feel the price what I have negotiated is right & sometimes I feel I have overpaid.
To find a solution to this problem, I spoke to Devender Kumar, my friend who was the one who introduced me to gir cow farming 2 years back. Devender stays 2km away to my farm & has his own dairy farm of gir cows of around 16. He is still trying to settle his farm.
I asked Devender, please tell me a practical approach how to decide right gir cow price & negotiate for the best price while buying gir cow.
My friend Devender had a simple formula, he said, measure the milk of the cow at least 3 times & if you find the milk is above 7-10 litres, then negotiate. What matters is all about NEGOTIATION SKILL.
My dear friend Devender’s formula for GIR COW PRICE CALCULATION, as narrated by him is as follows:
“Always try to negotiate, first directly ask for 30-40% less than the price offered by the seller. And then observe slowly how the seller behaves & then try to negotiate slowly. If you feel the seller is too firm & not agreeing, then increase your offer by 10-20% more. For ex, If a seller says the gir cow is 80,000, first reduce approx 40% which means approx 30,000 less.
80,000-40% = 50,000
If the seller does not agree then increase by another 15-20% i.e.
50,000 + 15,000 approx = 65,000.”
But I found the reply more as a smart negotiation skill than a negotiation based on some clear understanding. I asked Devender again ” So, have you been successful in your negotiations“.
Devender reply was “50:50”, meaning sometimes he is able to get sellers to agree to his offer & sometimes NO. What about the quality of gir cow.
Devender reply was again “50:50″… its all about taking a risk …
I said to Devender, SORRY! I do not want to take a risk & just negotiate based on NO UNDERSTANDING.
IS THERE STANDARDISED GIR COW PRICE!
I know there is no standard market price for gir cow. Price varies a lot. But I am still trying to understand some basic way of deciding the best possible way of at least making an approx estimation of a price range.
Challenge is you have sellers advertising for gir cow from 30,000 to 2 lakh plus per cow!
I am still confused, how to decide…..
EVALUATING RIGHT GIR COW PRICE!
If you are also in the process of buying gir cow like Kiran & confused, please understand the basic estimation of at least approximate the price range. And what are the key factors that decide pricing range?
Buying of Gir cow is one of the most challenging areas. A good Gir cow breed purchase will help in creating quality herd at your farm. Right Price is a very subjective thing & context based. Gir cow price would differ from situation to situation, place to place, from seller to seller & dependent on buyer’s wisdom, experience, need, urgency and desire.
