Key Performance Indicator Benchmarking Tool

Published 5 February 19

This online calculator enables dairy farmers to enter their own performance and financial figures to see how they benchmark with others.  

The KPI calculator breaks the measures down into two areas:

  • Enterprise key performance indicators - which highlight the six key areas for both AYR and block calving systems which are crucial to delivering the financial performance required.
  • Three key business measures that every business should know, understand and benchmark their performance against including full economic costs of production.

Farmers can either enter a KPI directly or follow the steps to help them calculate the figures for themselves.

Once complete, farmers can see how they compare against good, average and poor operators and identify areas for improvement.
