Dairy Australia Constitution and services

Dairy Australia’s constitution establishes the parameters within which we are able to operate. Dairy Australia was established in 2003 to act as the industry’s national services body. Our role is to undertake collective investment on behalf of the industry, investing in research, development, extension and industry services that individual farmers and dairy companies are unable to efficiently undertake themselves. The eight Regional Development Programs are funded by Dairy Australia to deliver services specific to each dairy region.

Our constitution does not allow us to act in the representation / advocacy area. This function is performed by Australian Dairy Farmers Limited, Australian Dairy Products Federation and their associated State dairy farmer organisations.
