DairyBase is a web-based package that records and reports standardised dairy farm business information and is used for the analysis of financial accounts in the Share Farmer of the Year Competition. If you are unfamiliar with DairyBase, take a look at their website – dairybase.co.nz
The DairyBase team will be contacting all our Share Farmer of the Year entrants to assist with getting reports completed by the due date. If you have not been contacted by them shortly after your entry, and wish to get the ball rolling, use the contact details below to get in touch with them.
The DairyBase team will assist you to get registered https://www.dairynz.co.nz/business/dairybase/join-dairybase (if you aren’t already) and discuss with you the process for completing the required physical information to be entered along with the financial data. Once registered, you will receive a Username and password to access their site.
If you are already registered with DairyBase, please contact your Accredited Rural Professional (accountant or consultant) and let them know that you require the analysis to be done ASAP. Ensure you have completed the Level 1 Physical Questionnaire and returned it to your Accredited Rural Professional so it can be entered along with the financial information. You may wish to also complete the Level 2 Physical Questionnaire which will add to your understanding of your business, but this is not a requirement of the competition.
There will be a cost to have financial accounts processed into the DairyBase report that will be charged to you by your Accountant. Once your data has been entered, you will be able to access the report we require to be submitted.
Should you have any questions or need some help, the friendly team at DairyBase is happy to take your calls or communication by e-mail.
