The Australian Milk Quality Awards recognise the lowest 5% of farms across Australia based on annual average bulk milk cell count (BMCC).

To be eligible, dairy farms must have BMCC data for a minimum of 9 months in a calendar year. Monthly averages are then used to calculate the annual average BMCC for each farm and the winners are the top 5% of farms with the lowest BMCC.

The winning farms receive a metal plaque for their gates and those in the top 100 receive a gold plaque.

Many mastitis control stories are about solving or avoiding problems, but these Awards enable us to celebrate success. It is a great collaboration between all the dairy companies and Dairy Australia's Countdown program.
