People Productivity Calculator

Use this calculator to work out your productivity in kg MS per hour worked.

Kilograms of milksolids per hour worked is a great way to look at how well your farm is leveraging its people capability. This calculator helps you work on the ‘smarter not harder’ concept, rather than labour as a cost and get the best from your staff.

Enter your figures below to calculate kg MS per hour worked. Once you've worked out your team productivity, why not use it as a KPI and work with your team to make improvements to it over the next season.
