Dairy Farm Monitor Project

The Dairy Farm Monitor Project (DFMP) provides a comprehensive physical and financial analysis of 250 dairy farms across Australia. It informs decision making and prioritisation by key stakeholders across the industry including Dairy Australia itself, government bodies and other stakeholders in the industry.

The data collected through the DFMP provides high quality comparative data in DairyBase. All dairy farmers can access this data through DairyBase to measure and compare their own farm business performance and identify areas for improvement.

DFMP participants are selected to represent a distribution of farm size, herd size and geographical location within each region. The results and trends reported need to be interpreted carefully as participant farms may not be fully representative of the industry.

Why the Dairy Farm Monitor Project was created

Farmers are making multiple operational and tactical decisions on a daily, weekly and seasonal basis. Some of these decisions can have lasting impact on the profitability and sustainability of their farm.

Dairy Australia provides independent data around a wide range of on-farm practices for farmers to consider when making decisions. This information ensures that the dairy service industry (a broad range of on-farm consultants) can use reliable, independent and useful information and resources to provide the right advice to farmers.
