DairyBase is an online tool enabling dairy farmers and their advisors to measure and compare farm business performance over time.
DairyBase enables farmers to create annual reports and forecasts and helps to identify opportunities to drive profit and manage risk. Farmers are equipped to make better informed decisions using DairyBase and generate comparative analysis according to farm size, region and production system.
DairyBase has been running since 2015 and currently has 2,500 users, including 1,800 farmers, jointly managing more than 10,000 unique data sets.
Every on-farm decision is made based on a combination of experience, data, and gut feel. Independent and reliable data to support on-farm decisions is often hard to find. Dairy Australia works with farmers and the broader industry to establish common language, terminology and metrics about farm performance, and provides tools like DairyBase to equip farmers to measure and track farm performance. This enables dairy farmers to better understand where they sit compared to others, informing future decisions.
