According to a new market research report, "Dairy Herd Management Market by Product (Automated Systems (Milking, Feeding/Nutrition Management), Software (Cloud based, AI, Data Analytics)), Application (Breeding, Calf Management, Feeding,), Farm Size (Large, Medium, Small) - Global Forecast to 2026", The global dairy herd management market is projected to USD 5.4 billion by 2026 from USD 3.7 billion in 2021, at a CAGR of 7.9% during the forecast period. 


The increasing herd size of dairy farms and growing consumption of milk and dairy products, increasing public-private funding and investments in dairy farming and technological advancements are the major factors driving the growth of the dairy herd management market. 


Based on product, the dairy herd management market is segmented into automated systems and software. Automated dairy management systems accounted for the largest share of the dairy herd management market in 2020. The large share of the automated systems segment is attributed to the increasing preference for automated systems due to their cost and labor efficiency.

The dairy herd management market is segmented into four major regions, namely, North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Rest of World. Europe dominated the global dairy herd management market, followed by North America. The large share of the European market can be attributed to a well-established dairy herd management industry, significant funding for research in dairy herd management, increasing herd size of dairy farms, rapid technological adoption in dairy farms, and the high cost of labor. 



Due to the pandemic and the movement restrictions associated with it, the labor-intensive dairy industry has faced a production shortage as the majority of tasks in animal farms are performed by skilled laborers. This has hampered the supply of laborers in farms and processing plants and milk transportation. 


Globally, the herd size of dairy farms has increased significantly over the years. According to the OECD-FAO Agricultural Outlook 2019-2028, compared to the previous decade, the estimated growth of cowherds is 1.2% per annum and is higher than the estimated average yield growth (0.4%) as cowherds are projected to grow faster in countries with low yields.
