Home grown feed costs for dairy farmers
The Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries has compiled this collection of home grown feed costs, as part of the C4 Milk project, to assist dairy farmers in feed budgeting and assist in the modelling of Queensland dairy systems.
All the following costings are available to download below in Excel format. With these spreadsheets you can add your own data and calculate your own costing of feeds.
These costings have been developed after speaking to dairy farmers across south east Queensland to determine typical management practices for different crops and pastures. Inputs prices have been sourcedfrom local rural merchandising outlets.
