Dairy Cattle - Elders Rural Services

Improve the performance and production of your dairy cattle

At Elders we understand the unique needs of Australian dairy farmers.

From animal health and breeding right through to stocking and selling, our established team of dairy experts can assist you at every stage, helping you to maximise your herd’s potential, grow your business and achieve your goals.


Animal health

Dairy farmers are passionate about their herd and its welfare. You depend on their daily milk production and the health of your animals is vital to their output.

There are many health conditions to which dairy cattle are particularly susceptible and early detection and treatment are vital. Nutritional needs also change with the seasons and life cycle.

Our knowledgeable team will give you the trusted nutritional, animal health and welfare advice you need to ensure your girls are performing at their best.
They can also advise on farm biosecurity and general business operations and can be relied on for impartial dairy industry knowledge.

Breeding advice

While the number of dairy farms across Australia has decreased, the average herd size is growing.1

Our dairy specialists can advise you on traits to consider when seeking to expand your herd and assist with genomic testing to ensure you get the best return for your investment.

With connections across Australia, our livestock team can help you source the best breeding stock and assist with sire selection.
