Queensland Dairy Accounting Scheme
The Queensland Dairy Accounting Scheme (QDAS) was established to improve the understanding of business principles among advisors and dairy farmers by providing farm management accounting and analysis. It also examines the business traits of profitability, solvency and efficiency whilst helping dairy farmers make informed business decisions.
The data is collected and processed between August and November and supervised by the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry.
Farmer participation in QDAS is voluntary and free. Results and trends need to be interpreted carefully as QDAS farms have larger herds and produce more milk per farm than the Queensland average.

How can you take part in QDAS?
Simply contact Ray Murphy, DAFF Toowoomba Ray.Murphy@daff.qld.gov.au
There is no charge for the service, and all individual records and reports are confidential.
All cooperators in QDAS use on-farm computers to collate monthly accounts, produce Business Activity Statements (BAS) and/or provide compiled data for taxation preparation. Co-operating farmers use a coding system that is compatible with all these statements and uses.
