Roger Mills
Dip. Ag., CAFA
Certified CAFA member
Steinbach Chapter
Roger retired from active dairy farming in 2002, since when, he has offered business consulting to dairy producers. He is contracted as the Dairy Business Consultant to the MB Dairy Farm Management Group, of which he was a founder member upon its inception in 1997. The MDFMG uses an analysis program developed for producers in Quebec and Eastern Ontario, for which he received training at the company’s offices in Montreal.  The analysis reports generated from the computer program, enable producers to benchmark their financial and production results against each other, or to the group average.  He still has a keen interest in Holstein genetics and retains ownership of some quality cattle.

After 35 years of operating 2 dairy farms [England and Canada], specializing in economic milk production, first and foremost, he feels that he has acquired the necessary knowledge that enables him to advise producers who wish to improve their business management skills. He uses this knowledge to build business plans and financial projections for producers who wish to expand their businesses.

Other activities include:-
Past chair and a founder member of Steinbach CAFA chapter, where he continues to serve on the executive committee.
Currently serving as chairman and member of the selection panel for the Dairy Farmers of Manitoba New Entrant Program.
