Each state has a substantial report written on each. Really like the Profit Maps included in each. Worth checking out each year.

The Dairy Farm Monitor Project is a joint initiative between DEPI and Dairy Australia. It provides financial and production analysis for farms across Australian states.

An example of state reports is below:
