Farm Business Management
AHDB Dairy’s role is to promote world class knowledge and expertise in British dairy farming. This includes taking the best management practices from other industries and sectors and using them to help our farmers profit from a sustainable future; Lean is a way of doing this.
Planning for Profit is AHDB Dairy’s planning workshop for dairy farmers, who will get a chance to work through real financial and physical management and nutritional scenarios for their businesses.
People management broadly defines the influence the farmer has over the individuals whose skills and labour are utilised in order to run the farm business efficiently.
Forage for Knowledge is the AHDB Dairy grass analysis project for 2015. We will be following 13 farmers across GB as they aim to get great quality and consistency for the whole grazing season.
Feeding dairy cows and young stock is one of the highest costs for milk production. There is though a large variation of feeding costs between relatively similar systems.
Breeding has a considerable impact on profitability, as demonstrated by the fact that 80% of the increase in milk yield over the past 20 years can be attributed to improved breeding.
