LEAN Management for dairy farmers

The concept of LEAN management comes from manufacturing.  It allows the dairy farmer to look at milk production as a series of linked production processes, and to set targets for efficiency improvements that lead to increased profits.

The LNW Dairy Monitor farm in Cheshire is using this management approach and has made great gains in the last two years, recording a 23% improvement in net margin per litre of milk produced.

RADA is working with DairyCo on a research project to roll LEAN out to the dairy farming industry, by training advisers as Dairy Lean Consultants.
