Farm Business Management
DairyCo proposes consultant support, funded through the levy, to help assess the immediate impact from the potential cash-flow challenges from the current market situation. The aim of this DairyCo offer is to help levy payers define an approach for the coming weeks and months.
Planning for Profit is a great way for dairy farmers to work through real financial and management scenarios for their business and test options for change.
People management broadly defines the influence the farmer has over the individuals whose skills and labour are utilised in order to run the farm business efficiently.
Forage for Knowledge is the DairyCo grass analysis project for 2014. We will be following 12 farmers across GB as they aim to get great quality and consistency for the whole grazing season.
Feeding dairy cows and young stock is one of the highest costs for milk production. There is though a large variation of feeding costs between relatively similar systems.
Breeding has a considerable impact on profitability, as demonstrated by the fact that 80% of the increase in milk yield over the past 20 years can be attributed to improved breeding.
