The new collaborative dairy RD&E program for NSW
Unlocking the potential of milk, cow and water to increase productivity and profitability,
de-risk the dairy industry and develop new markets.
Dairy UP has produced a short (90 second) introductory video to explain how the various partners and sponsors are working together.

Dairy UP welcomes two PhD candidates. Alice Shirley and Maddi Pearson will work with the Dairy Up group that is developing novel monitoring tools to optimise individual animal management, under the supervision of Cameron Clark at the University of Sydney.
This project aims to determine the occurrence and spread of viruses and bacteria in NSW dairy herds. The information will provide a foundation for tools to help farmers and vets monitor and treat diseases such as scours and respiratory disease.
All dairy farming systems can be profitable if managed well, but preliminary data analysis from NSW’s Dairy UP program suggests there’s more variability in tough seasons for non-grazing systems. That was the message from NSW DPI Development Officer and Dairy Business Advisory Unit leader Sheena Carter, who presented some early farm financial and physical performance information to the Dairy Research Foundation Symposium.
