QDAS - Qld Dairy Accounting Scheme

The Queensland Dairy Accounting Scheme (QDAS) is a service of the Queensland Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry, and was established to improve the understanding of business principles among advisors and dairy farmers by providing farm management accounting and analysis.  QDAS has evolved to now examine the business traits of profitability, solvency and efficiency and continues to help dairy farmers make informed decisions based on business information.

The QDAS reports provide a summary of physical and financial data from various dairy production systems in Queensland.  Farmer participation in QDAS is voluntary and free. Results and trends need to be interpreted carefully as QDAS farms have larger herds and produce more milk per farm than the Queensland average.
