Dairy Management Consulting (DMC) is a company specialising in the benchmarking and optimisation of dairy farming operations. On a monthly basis, data is collected from the herd management software, processed and put in a monthly report. The primary function of the report is to identify areas within the herd (i.e. reproduction, calf rearing, production, culls and mortalities) that need improvement. After identifying the specific area, along with the management team, plans and protocols are put in place addressing the area of concern and progress is closely monitored. The secondary function of the report is that it provides a benchmark, allowing you as a producer to compare yourself to the industry.
DMC specialises in the benchmarking and optimisation of dairy farming operations.
We currently consult for 90 dairy farmers country wide, making up about 20% of the daily milk produced in South Africa.
With an average milking herd size of 700 cows, you are able to measure yourself against South Africa’s top dairy farmers.
