Milk Forecasting Calculator

Dairy

As a dairy farmer this will allow you to compare your current system against a range of alternative scenarios and includes spring and autumn block calving herds profiles as part of AHDB’s optimal dairy systems approach. The tool can be used to see how changes to herd size, yields or calving patterns will impact your business. To aid planning, comparisons can be made over a three year period and feed costs added to see the impact of any changes over time.
