background to on farm milk quality
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
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
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
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)
