The Dairy Profit Monitor (DPM) is a tool to measure net milk income over feed costs. Uses of the program include tracking progress of the farm over time, and making comparisons to other farms using the program.

Data from the DPM was used to create graphs that show how 46 farms using the program from October 2012 to September 2013 changed in: pounds of components produced per head per day, pregnancy rate, feed conversion (lbs of milk per pound of dry matter),cost per pound of dry matter fed, net milk income over purchased, and total feed costs using actual and fixed milk prices. 

For more information on the Dairy Profit Monitor or for a free three-month trial, visit or contact Betsey Howland, PRO-DAIRY Extension Support Specialist, at
