Social benefit cost analysis of Dairy Moving Forward extension activity

Dairy Australia has delivered a program entitled DMF involving a series of activities to enhance the expertise of dairy farmers and encourage their use of expert services. A substantial investment of $5.2m (adjusted to 2005 dollars) has been made by Dairy Australia in the program. In this report, justifications for DA using farmers’ and taxpayers’ funds in this way are explored; a Social Benefit Cost Analysis has been carried out. The conclusion is that the public and industry investment in DMF is likely to have earned a return on capital that justifies the investment.
