The national Focus Farms program has been running in the DairyTas region since 2014.

The program benefits participants and interested farmers and communities in Tasmania and nationally. Focus Farms has created a growing network of dairy farms across Australia that are now models of whole farm systems and profitability.

How does this program benefit Tasmanian dairy farmers?

Tasmanian Focus Farms provide deep insight into the local farming methods and national industry-standard business practices that help increase efficiencies and a better work/life balance for Tasmanian dairy farmers. On every Focus Farm, the bottom line is always in focus.

Over the two year project term, Tasmanian and national dairy farmers look at strategies that will be applied on-farm to improve the farming business bottom line and balance priorities.

Farm Open Days give local and visiting dairy farmers the chance to talk to the Focus Farm farmers as well as community. Honest and open measures of progress are discussed and documented – allowing dairy farmers and community members to see real progress, real issues and understand the rationale behind the decisions and the outcome. Check out the Tasmanian Focus Farm monthly KPI reporting for our current Focus Farm here.
