Dairy farming is a class of agriculture for long-term production of milk, which is processed (either on the farm or at a dairy plant, either of which may be called a dairy) for eventual sale of a dairy product. Dairy milk production in KHATIB DAIRY contributes to improve the welfare of farm households. It generates daily income for farmers, provides a highly nutritious food for people, create employment opportunities for the society. This study aims to apply a monitoring system in farms to assist farmers improving their performance. The main findings are: milk yield and income were rather high but varied largely from this farm to others. Homegrown feed accounted for a small part of cost but produced large amount of milk while purchased feed dominated a very large proportion of cost but produced huge milk quantity. Most of the farmers followed the objective of increasing milk production but did not pay attention to the quality of herd and milk; did not make an optimal decision. Experience, land area, and herd size were the major factors that increased economic performance in farms.
