It takes around one year for cows to produce offsprings and with that milk. The timeframe varies a bit and after a few years you will get milk year around. Make sure to sell all male offsprings as soon as possible if you want to maximize your profits.
Or keep them around to feed out for beef.
I think it’s 3 seasons for milk/calf but that’s only if cows have 9 month gestation periods.

Sure you can, thats why i wrote maximize ;-)
Holsteins aren't very lucrative as beef cattle as they need too long and eat to much compared to the real beef cattle.
Whenever i started a milk operation it took me nearly one full year for the first milk.

Now I have a project to attempt if my computer ever gets fixed... is it more profitable to feed out steers or sell.

It takes around one year for cows to produce offsprings and with that milk. The timeframe varies a bit and after a few years you will get milk year around. Make sure to sell all male offsprings as soon as possible if you want to maximize your profits.
Ah so I should have males in with the females

It doesn’t really matter as the cows are AI’d in Seasons.

Artificial Insemination
Pretty much standard practice for swine and pretty common for cattle.
