Why the Production Inputs Monitor is created

The Production Inputs Monitor provides farmers, government, industry advocacy and businesses across the supply chain with independently produced, unbiased data on farm inputs.

Dairy Australia collects, analyses and provides information so farmers are better equipped to make informed decisions and engage with processors and service providers about their farm business.
