Costs and returns analysis as well as functional analysis were performed in the study. The study showed that, about 20.00 percent of RCC farm owners were landless, 40.00 percent were small and marginal farmers, 23.33 percent were medium and 16.67 percent were large farmers according to their landholding sizes. The average rearing cost of RCC per cow per year was found on the basis of cash cost, non- cash cost and full cost basis at Tk. 34699, Tk. 12655 and Tk.47354 respectively. The study also found that, average daily milk yield, lactation yield and lactation length of RCC were found 2.65 liters, 565.21 liters and 215 days, respectively. The average gross return per year per cow of RCC was found at Tk.53283.33. The average gross returns per lactation per cow of RCC rearing over cash cost and full cost basis were found at Tk.19698 and Tk. 7043, respectively. The BCR on the basis of cash cost and full costs per year per cow were found 1.58 and 1.15 respectively. The study also revealed that, the rural farmers prefer RCC farming than other local breeds due high conception rate, each year calving, disease resistance, high milk fat per cent, low calf mortality, high demand of beef, looking very nice cost and cost effective farming etc.
