The Tasmanian Dairy Business of the Year Award is awarded to the business that records the highest number of points in the judging process, with benchmarking data considering financial performance, management, pasture, herd size and environment.
DairyTas executive officer Jonathan Price said it was heartening to see such high performance in the industry, despite recent challenges.
“It has been fantastic to recognise those businesses and individuals throughout the industry that have performed across these key areas in 2021,” Mr Price said.
“Despite the challenges of COVID-19, the Tasmanian Dairy Industry has continued to perform well with record milk production and increased business confidence.”
Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture dairy extension team leader and award judge Lesley Irvine said it was “really exciting” to see the focus each of the finalists had on pasture management, with each business regularly measuring their pasture and using that data to help make decisions on their farm.
