Farm Business Snapshot Tool
Dairy Australia has developed the Farm Business Snapshot to provide an analysis of the historical performance of a dairy farm business, helping users to better understand their production costs and overall profitability.
The reports from the tool will provide additional information to support the decision-making process and enable farmers to take actions in their business that best suit their needs.
Australian Dairy Plan
The Australian Dairy Plan is an industry led initiative to create a more profitable, confident and united industry.
It is supported by Australian Dairy Farmers, Australian Dairy Products Federation, Dairy Australia and Gardiner Dairy Foundation, with John Brumby AO serving as Independent Chair.
The Milk Value Portal is designed to deliver to Commitment 5 of the Australian Dairy Plan, which aims to “restore trust and transparency between farmers, processors and retailers to strengthen industry confidence”.
Commitment 5 of the Dairy Plan is a historic reset of how farmer and processors work together, designed to restore trust and transparency throughout the supply chain through providing farmers with tools that can help better understand FMP, market volatility, so as drive productivity and profitability. It reads:
Commitment 5: We will restore trust and transparency between farmers and processors to strengthen industry confidence
The three initiatives proposed within this commitment are:
1. Establish the Milk Value Portal to provide greater transparency on farm-gate milk price and the value of milk by region and key supply metrics
2. Develop Margin Scenario Calculators to improve farmer understanding of the costs of production of raw milk
3. Lay the groundwork for additional milk trading options.
