Dairy costings is a monthly look at how your enterprise is performing. It is a quick look at the cost of feeding and the milk produced.


Other variable costs can also be included.

While the service doesn’t replace the need for a budget, it provides a look at the key figures on a monthly basis.

The idea is not to congratulate or bemoan on a monthly basis but understand the reasons for the changes. Has efficiency dropped because the days in calf has gone up or is it because the ration isn’t balanced.

Trends can also be monitored within the herd, and then benchmarked against groups of producers. We have teamed up with Kingshay to offer costings which enable us to benchmark against a wide range of groups that suit your farm. As ever the information is only as good as what goes in, so one of our roles is to scrutinise and proof the data.
