DairyCo Milkbench+ report 2012

Published 16 January 12

This report shows the findings of the first full analysis that we have carried out on Milkbench+ data. The report raises many issues, including just how difficult it can be to make a profit from milk production.

However, there are also strong indications that many dairy farmers have the opportunity to take positive steps in managing production costs that could significantly increase financial returns. In this, the first of an annual series of Milkbench+ reports, we have made three key findings and drawn three high-level conclusions.
