A focus farm is a real farm, making real decisions, under real conditions; what is happening on farm will be instantly relatable for many other dairy farmers.
The intent of the focus farm program is to focus on a farm business with an aim to meet core farm goals (financial, personal and lifestyle, lift profit and increase efficiencies through improved decision making. The program runs for a period of 2 years and tracks the progress of the farm over that time.
The focus farm has a support group facilitated by an experienced consultant and is made up of farmers and service providers who provide guidance, encouragement and decision support to the focus farm.
Dairy NSW is commissioning a study of the impact the two farms have had on the focus farm family, support group and those who attended.
