Limousin are selected to have long gestation periods, which is around 290 to 300 days (or more) in length.
Until her udder and vulva start to swell late in her third trimester, the only way to tell a cow is pregnant by looking at her is that she's getting pretty round in the sides. You can also bump her side gentely with your fist and feel the calf inside her. The best way to find out is to have your vet do a pregnancy check on her.
To determine if a dairy cow is pregnant, feel the area immediately to the SIDE (left or right) of the base of the tail. If it is hard, the heifer or cow is not pregnant, if it is soft, she is pregnant. I recall this from many many years ago when I was a teenager working on my uncle's dairy farm.
Another way is to see if the cow comes in to heat again (21 day cycles). This is demonstrated by bulling behavior. A cow in heat will stand and allow another cow to mount her or attempt to mount another cow. If the cow being mounted walks away from the attempt, then in all probability the cow that was on top is in estrus.

Desi cows is a general Indian term referring to all cows that are used for milk and draft. Jersey is just a specific breed of cow that is also found in India along with other breeds that are indigenous to India, like the Nellore, for instance.
A Guernsey is a kind of light brown with white patches on its forehead, legs, tail, and on its shoulder. Eyes, nose and hooves are the same colouration as the rest of its coat colouration pattern is.
Jerseys, on the other hand, range from a blackish brown to a fawn colour, with their noses, eyes, hooves, switch, and ears a blackish colour. Often fully mature cattle have a dark face if they have the signature fawn colour, with a light ring around their muzzle and eyes. Other Jerseys that are do not meet the breed registry will have white patches on their body along with the signature dark dark points and often light body.

I have looked into this a lot and there is no answer anywhere on the internet for your question but it does happen that i live on a farm in jersey and we get around 2467L of milk from approximately 58 cows.

Amerifax cattle are predominantly polled.
Pretty much, yes. Though if you want her to keep producing adequate quantities of milk and not decrease in milk production over time it is best to have her bred so that she will produce a calf a year after she gave birth to her last one. By doing that you will have to allow a two to three month dry-up period prior to her expected due date.
A cow yielding about 20 litres of milk a day would cost approximately Rs.40000-50000. depending upon age, fat content in milk, beauty, structure, etc.
Cows are expensive in Punjab, relatively cheaper in Haryana.

No. She is a dairy cow, one that is used to primarily produce milk.
The average Jersey Cow produces 22 liters of milk per day (5.8 gallons)
The process of milk is not directly linked to the cow's digestive system, no matter what colour of hide the cow is: black, brown, red, white, black-and-white, yellow, orange, etc. Milk becomes white because of the blood that supplies the cells in the alveoli that are found in huge masses in the udder. Milk has similar components to blood, except for hemoglobins and red blood cells which make blood red. These components that are fed to the milk secreting cells by the capillaries are what makes the milk white. Other contributors to the whiteness of milk are proteins called Casein that are found in milk.
By volume per coin: 10,500 dimes, 4,200 quarters or 2,100 half-dollars. By the way, each add up to $1, 050.00, but the reason for that is another question! Pennies will give you about $77.71, nickles add up to $1,313.10. But that amount is a little higher than the actual amount which fills your gallon jug because of: coin wear, shape of the volume you are filling, how dense you can pack it. The average is about 27% less, or $766.50. See: http://home.att.net/~numericana/answer/trivia.htm
Not as much as he would do nowadays, but I would say around 2 million a year.

Jersey bull calves are slaughtered for veal. Jersey cows, when they're too old to be productive any more or are culled for productivity reasons, are slaughtered for beef, which is often made into ground beef for hamburger and such. Ultimately, though, Jerseys are not used for meat, but for dairy or milk production.
This would depend upon the relative size of the Jersey and the Brahman in question. Jersey cows are among the smaller breeds of cattle, and Brahman bulls tend to be among the larger breeds of cattle. It may be a better idea to collect the Brahman bull and artificially inseminate the Jersey cow if you really want this cross to happen.
To add to what was mentioned above in the first sentence, a Jersey cow may be able to handle a Brahman bull if the bull was a yearling, not a fully mature 2200+ lb bull. To compare, Jersey bulls mature at around 1600 to 1800 lbs, considerably smaller than the average mature weight of a Brahmer. Thus, as mentioned above, if you want a Jersey-Brahman cross bad enough, it's possibly best to AI the Jersey cow with Brahman semen. Note, though, the bull from where the semen was collected better have high calving ease/low birth weight EPDs (Expected Progeny Differences) so that the Jersey will not have a difficult birth (dystocia) if she might if you paid little attention to such numbers.
It is not really known when this breed originated. Some say it may have originated as early as the 18th century, others say they originated well before Jersey Island joined England.
Certainly breeding of the Jersey cows has been managed since 1763, according to one website.
