Supporting farm businesses

We understand the many challenges of running a profitable dairy farming business in Australia. That’s why we created the Fonterra SupportCrew™, a dedicated team of highly skilled specialists. 

Over the past few years we’ve helped many suppliers across all regions improve their farm’s profitability and long-term value.  Our team can supply expert help for farm businesses in these five key areas:


We can help with Fonterra Income Estimations, annual and monthly budgeting, investment scenario planning, financial business analysis, and opportunities for maximising milk revenue.


Nutrition & Agronomy

From pasture management to grazing management programs and nutrient management plans, the Fonterra SupportCrew™ can help with practical advice on contracts, job descriptions, staff retention, performance management and industry training.


Human Resource Management

We can provide practical advice on staff contracts, job descriptions, staff retention, performance management and industry training. 



Quality milk means a healthier bottom line. Our SupportCrew™ can provide advice on Fonterra’s Milk Quality, Herd Testing and Milk Cooling Equipment Incentives, Bulk Milk Cell Count action planning management, antibiotic investigations and problem identification through dairy plant trace backs.



There’s increasing focus on the need to care for herds and the physical environment, and we can advise on animal welfare and farm sustainability policies, to nutrient management, effluent systems and water management.
