Our analysis tools include:

  • Dairy Business Navigator – Our Dairy Business Navigator – initially developed under an industry program – evaluates the performance of the range of dairy farm production systems in each region of the industry, with the facility to rapidly assess the impact of changes in market conditions, policy changes and climatic variability over time.

    The tool has been extended into a dynamic systems tool by Freshagenda as a commercial aid for analysis in client projects, assessing impact on farm enterprises.  The model is inherently complex due to the nature of milk production enterprises, the range of systems in use and the wide range of variables it caters for.

    The tool has been used to assess the impact on the production sector of the industry in different regions of changes in policy (specifically the water markets regime), different climate outlooks, and the application of production enhancement technologies to improve farm milk output.

  • Dairy Market Simulation Tool – Our dairy market simulation tool – developed in-house by Freshagenda – provides a dynamic modelling of the forecast global trade in dairy commodities and includes linkages between production, consumption, exports and imports of milk and dairy products.

    This tool underpins a range of information and analysis projects undertaken by Freshagenda.

  • Milk Returns Simulator – We developed a milk returns simulator, which assesses returns from dairy manufacturers, based on differences in product mix, value-adding units, cost structure, and commodity prices.
