The Dairy Cost Study is an annual program that provides Alberta dairy farmers with the opportunity to receive a detailed cost of production report for their specific farm. Alberta Agriculture has published a series of short briefs that provide additional insight into local dairy production.

• Overview

• Feed Cost

• Dairy Farm Income

These briefs are available on the Government of Alberta Publications page, open.alberta.ca/ publications, if you search for ‘dairy brief’. Alberta Agriculture and Forestry, with support from Alberta Milk, conduct the study. If you sign up to participate in the study, you will:

• Receive a valuable business analysis on your cost of milk production, which will help manage your business;

• Have access to continuous support to complete the study;

• Support the Alberta dairy industry by participating; and

• Be eligible to receive a $500 gratuity at the end of the year.

If you have questions, or would like to sign up to participate, please contact Pauline Van Biert at pauline.vanbiert@gov.ab.ca or 780-415- 2153.
