Dairy Australia - Dairy information for Australian Dairy Farmers and the industry

Primary content

‘My Summer Farm Strategy’ is one way for farmers to access factsheets and resources specific to their operation to make the most of the milk price this season.

The Dairy Australia self-assessment survey tool takes just 10 minutes and means farmers can receive tailored information around effective feeding and management options from Dairy Australia to make informed decisions.

Farmers looking to take advantage of high farmgate milk prices this season continue to be challenged by ongoing cost pressures and variable conditions across the country.

In response Dairy Australia has created a number of new resources for farmers who have been affected by drought conditions and have limited access to pasture and minimal fodder reserves as well as resources designed for farmers where conditions and settings are more positive.

New factsheets and video content includes expert information on:

  • Keeping cows on the curve feeding little or no pasture
  • Buying, storing and delivering feed to cows this season
  • Planning your forage strategy for summer
  • Stock water – supply, cow access and quality
  • Preparing for a long, hot summer
  • Feeding strategy for maximum profit

Take the My Summer Farm Strategy self-assessment questionnaire to ensure you have information for current conditions so you can make the most of the milk price this summer.
