    Imagine that you are actually developing this idea in real life, who can be your competitors? Probably it's going to be local stores which sell similar products to yours. What will you provide to your consumers which your competitors don't? Your example with cows and animals being well nutritioned is good but also think about the service. You're going to deliver excellent customer and after sales service, for example.

    Advertising is part of marketing, advertising doesn't come under utilities. Initial inventory is your stock I think. As for rent, you need a place where you're gonna sell your products. You can rent it out therefore you need to come up with a cost. If you've taken out a loan, how much per month you're gonna have to give back? Hope that helps.
