For a dairy producer, the process of milk payment is not just based on weight or volume, but also on the key components of milk.

So, what are the key components of milk? Water, fat and solids-non-fat (SNF). These components determine the value of milk for the producer.

Milk is handled based on weight or volumebe it for receipt, storage, transfer or production. So, based on the volume, how does a dairy producer determine the value of milk according to the key components?

For starters, most dairy producers track the components manually for each receipt. This tracking is done outside of their current ERP system and is a time-consuming process which can affect employee productivity. This is where component pricing model functionality comes in handy.

An efficient ERP system removes the complexity involved in component pricing by allowing your dairy business to track milk receipts in weight or volume at lot level. You're also able to identify the component quality from different milk-vendors and allow for premium or flat deduction based on bacteria count, somatic cell count, administration fee and volume credit. Then, you can price each receipt around those components.

The component pricing functionality enables your dairy business to focus more on profitability and product quality. Your dairy business can efficiently and accurately calculate the milk producer’s payment (both pre-payment and final) based on component payment calculations. Key historical data (quantity and component quality) can be communicated with the milk producer themselves.

By integrating pricing and costing by components, your dairy business can grow and achieve your operational goals.

A dairy company’s marketing plan should feature instructions on how to accrue sums by specific criteria and how to pay these accrued amounts to one or more accounts. If this sounds like a fairytale, it might be time to evaluate if you have the right ERP system for your dairy business.
You probably can relate to this: The dairy products in your refrigerator are always stamped with terms like Sell By, Use Before, Use By, Fresh Before, Best if Used By and Best if Sold By, right?           This label indicates the peak quality of the product. However, most consumers think that this date is associated with the quality expiration of the product.
