Summary and Implications

Organic dairy producers (and others who aspire to this profession) need sound economic data and analyses to make decisions. This study analyzed and evaluated the profitability of 15 Iowa organic dairies using Dairy TRANS Financial Analysis software. On average, these 15 dairies showed “good” profitability for 2014 but there was a wide range of results. It is hoped these ongoing studies will assist current and aspiring organic dairy producers to both budget and benchmark their dairy operations to better plan for future profitability. Producers are also urged to consider using the Dairy TRANS Financial Analysis to analyze and further improve dairy profits regardless of the production system being utilized.
