€1200 to maintain a cow on a grass based dairy system

Profit Monitor system for Irish Dairy farms averaged a cost of €1200 to keep a cow for a year on a dairy farm in Ireland. With the cost of production at 24 cents and the cost of milk at 32cents each cent profit by 6000 litres, this makes little economic sense.
