Farm Business Management

Dairy Australia invests in the farm business management area to help farmers and their advisers in focusing on the profit performance of their farm business. Projects in this area help farmers better understand their costs and income base, and the costs and risks associated with adapting farming systems under increasingly variable operating conditions.
