Well your best bet to maximize cash flow would likely be holsteins. They might cost more and consume more feed, but nothing else will come close in productivity that I am aware of. That is all anyone uses around here (southwest Wi) for dairy, and we are supposed to be america's dairyland.
Don't know what to suggest for equipment, but try to keep initial cost as low as possible. Then upgrade over time with whatever profits there might be. Chances of sucess are higher that way then trying to service a huge debt load from the onset.
