Free-of-charge benchmarking program

Find out how your dairy farm compares with others in the State. TIA offers a free and anonymous benchmarking service that provides information about the efficiency and performance indicators of dairy farming businesses.

All businesses who enter the benchmarking receive a detailed farm report, comparing current and previous years' farm information (if available), including financial and physical information such as costs (per cow, per ha and per kg/MS), milk and feed production, labour efficiency, and pasture utilisation; both for your farm business and a state average for Tasmania.

The report is part of the national Dairy Farm Monitor Project (DFMP). Reports on all dairy regions of Australia are available on the Dairy Australia website.

To sign up for benchmarking, contact Lesley Irvine.
