Dairy Moving Forward
This project is a 'cross-industry' strategic planning process for R, D & E. Dairy Australia works with the government, universities, the CSIRO, and other dairy industry bodies to coordinate investment in R, D & E.
Through collaboration, Dairy Moving Forward aims to remove duplication from the R, D & E planning process, ensure maximum ROI from investment, and in turn, support our industry's competitiveness and sustainability.
Program Manager Ross Bawden talks through the key objectives and benefits of Dairy Moving Forward...
There are a number of initiatives under the Dairy Moving Forward umbrella, including direct infrastructure investment, research support, human capability building, facilitating the ongoing industry planning and fore sighting to facilitate the industry taking advantage of future opportunities.
The initiative is an industry led and supportive of the national PISC and PIMC agricultural RDE strategy development framework. The dairy initiative is likely to increasingly link to the other industry and across industry initiatives.
The initiative is governed by the Dairy Moving Forward Committee. The committee includes representatives of:
- Australian Dairy Farmers
- Australian Dairy Products Federation
- Dairy Australia
- Department of Primary Industries Victoria
- Geoffrey Gardiner Foundation
- Universities involved in Dairy Research
- United Dairy Farmers Victoria
