Dairy farm costs (fact sheet)
Having an efficient cost of production is important for farm business financial performance.
The Dairy farm costs fact sheet breaks down farm working expenses such as cash variable and overhead costs.
Cost of production is relative to the farming system. A low cost of production is achieved by ensuring all inputs are used efficiently in the production process and that investment is directed at improving production efficiency, therefore reducing cost of production.
Dairy Australia's regional teams deliver farm business management training in each dairy region. More information on this training is available by contacting a regional team.
