Framework project overview l.jpg

Framework project overview


Background to on farm milk quality l.jpg

Background to on farm milk quality

  • Underpinned by food safety regulations for milk production

  • Dairy companies have primary role for compliance of all their farm suppliers

  • Complexity of compliance on farm - opportunity to link e-learning & e-compliance

  • Builds on existing paper-based face to face systems overseen by factories

  • Potentially powerful driver/embedder of e-learning across the whole farm sector


Milk quality e learning trials l.jpg

Milk quality e-Learning trials

  • Generic e-learning course developed (with potential to be customised by a dairy company)

  • Two farmer trials with Murray Goulburn with on-line computers in a classroom setting.

    • Trials at Terang and Tongala with 23 farmers & employees

  • One farmer trial with National Foods and Burra Foods with on-line computer in their home office.

    • 12 farmers & employees from Gippsland (Victoria), Hunter Valley (NSW) & Western Australia

  • Milk supply officers from each dairy company also participated in the e-learning course

    • Murray Goulburn (2), Burra Foods (1), National Foods (4)


  • Trial results l.jpg

    Trial results

    • Evaluation suggests the e-learning unit was both well structured and delivered and meet the learner’s needs

    • Significant number of people felt they could undertake on-line learning at home:

      • “I got to do it at my own pace and all of the information was there”

      • “Easy to use and understand”

      • “Online didn't need to be away from farm duties for a whole day”

      • “Ability to use with staff as training even if only a select portion was used”

      • “do it at my own pace”


    Next steps l.jpg

    Next steps

    • Murray Goulburn has already decided to progressively implement across the company for all suppliers with two broad options

      • In a class room setting with on-line computers

      • In a home office setting with an on-line computer.

  • An on-line presentation (Breeze/Illuminate) to all senior dairy company farm milk supply managers (August/September)

  • Meeting with Farm Auditor Working Group (dairy companies & food safety regulators) to discuss a national approach (October)
