NSW Dairy Farm Monitoring Project

The NSW Dairy Farm Monitor Project (DFMP) provides profitability and productivity data for a range of farms across New South Wales.

It allows farmers to compare their performance against other farms and identify areas for improvement. DFMP is a joint initiative between the NSW Department of Primary Industries and Dairy Australia.

The NSW Dairy Farm Monitor Project (DFMP) is highly valued by industry and participating (anonymous) dairy farmers. Benefits to you as a farmer include:

  • An experienced DFMP data collector visiting you to collect your physical and financial information
  • Analysis of your farm business performance, presented to you in an individual farm report. Continuous involvement means reports will have historical annual data included.
  • A copy of the NSW DFMP Annual Report


Farmer opportunity

If reviewing your farm performance and understanding where your business strengths and opportunities lie are a priority for you (and you have good farm physical and financial records) there is potential to enrol more NSW dairy businesses into the program.
