What we do
Dairy Australia invests across the dairy supply chain, identifying the best opportunities for collective action - the activities that farmers and companies cannot do efficiently themselves.
Investment by Strategic Priority
To achieve its core business objectives, Dairy Australia annually develops and reviews a set of strategic priorities, which we use to guide investment in our current projects.
Strategic Priority 1 -Profitable dairy farms
Pre-farm gate programs
To improve the profitability and resilience of dairy farms.
Find the right markets for dairy products, and ensure organisations can sell without undue restrictions.
Strategic Priority 2 - Capable people
Attract transition and retain
Sourcing the people and skills the industry needs to grow is a key issue.
Includes creating a broader multi-sector remit for the NCDE brand.
Regional operations and extension
To accelerate the extent and rate of adoption by farmers of industry standard farming practices, new ideas and technology, particularly those which are the result of DA’s investments in RD&E.
Workforce strategy and planning
People are key drivers of productivity. Issues such as generational demographics and regional differences create challenges and opportunities.
Strategic Priority 3 - Trusted dairy industry
Investments that promote products and reputation and creating knowledge and insights into the industry, including:
- Industry and community marketing
- Industry risk and reputation management
- Knowledge and insights
