There is a unique dataset of dairy farms in Europe that join the farm comparison of UNIFORM-Agri. With these datasets we can look at how the farms change because we can follow an exact group of farms and their data. We totally respect the privacy, so we only show the trend of the group of farms per country. Most of the data is yearly rolling averages and measured in January.
Initially I will start with the farm size and the number of youngstock, but we will also look at the modern sustainability kpi’s. After this we will focus on the development of production levels and fertility and health. There is also an interesting general comparison in the performance between the different countries.
The numbers of farms that have joined this voluntary comparison for 3 years in a row are as follows NL (Netherlands); 1420, Belgium; 299, Germany; 170 and UK; 480. It is exactly this group of farms who provide the data and they all use the UNIFORM Herd management software or a branded version of it which makes this farm comparison so unique.
