Australian Milk Quality Awards

The Australian Milk Quality Awards recognise farms across Australia with an annual average bulk milk cell count (BMCC) in the lowest 5% during the financial year (1 July 2020 to 30 June 2021).

To be eligible, dairy farms must have BMCC data for a minimum of nine months which is then supplied by their processor to Dairy Australia. BMCC results for each collection are then used to calculate the annual average BMCC for each farm and the winners are the top 5% of farms with the lowest BMCC.

Those in the top 100 receive a gold plaque for their farm gate and those in the top 5% receive a silver plaque.

The Awards enable the industry to celebrate success. It is a great collaboration between dairy companies and Dairy Australia's Countdown program.

2021 Milk Quality Award winners

The 2021 winners of Dairy Australia’s Milk Quality Awards have been announced, showcasing dairy farmers in the top 100 (gold winners) and top five per cent (silver winners) nationwide for milk quality, based on bulk milk cell count (BMCC).

The Milk Quality Awards show Aussie farmers are continuing to deliver high-quality milk and safeguarding the health of their animals.

Dairy Australia is continuing to support farmers to build the skills of their people on-farm, improve their milk quality and prevent udder infections through world-renowned animal health programs such as Countdown and training courses such as Cups On Cups Off and Milking and Mastitis Management.

Dairy farmers can access milk quality resources and training programs by contacting their local Dairy Australia’s regional team.

See the full winner list from each region below.
