That anyone requires a lot of money and capital to start successful dairy farming is a great misconception. Am I mistaken? I am getting all my facts right and learning about animal breeding and management. What number of animals can make a good start?

Oh no, it's not a misconception. Animal breeding and management is the correct place to start, but you also have to build a milk house that will be certified by your local state agency. That is VERY expensive. Before you start aquireing a herd, look into the costs of a milk house. Outfitting the building according to code, buying the equipment, setting up the plumbing and power are huge expenses.
