Ranking of essential services

To guide state and federal governments in establishing essential services lists, Dairy Australia has developed a list of associated services and industries which dairy farmers rely upon to produce safe food, to ensure the welfare of their cattle and ensure business continuity. In the same document is a similar list of associated services and industries which milk processors rely upon in their role in transporting, processing, packaging and delivering safe dairy products.

These lists have been contributed to by dairy farmers and milk processors through Australian Dairy Farmers, State Dairy Farmer Organisations, Australian Dairy Products Federation and the regional farmer boards of Dairy Australia.

The lists are as comprehensive as possible in developing in a short time frame, though is evolving as additional information is provided.
