Strategic plan


Dairy Australia’s Strategic Plan for the 3 year planning period 2016/17 to 2018/19. 

  • Dairy Australia remains committed to the ADIC vision: “Australian Dairy – Prosperous, Trusted, World Renowned Nutrition”, by driving industry services and innovation for the ultimate benefit of levy payers.
  • 2015/16 has been more challenging, and 2016/17 may be difficult generally.
  • Agriculture has become a focus for local and international investment. The big industry challenge is to profitably grow farm production to fully take advantage of regional potential over the next decade.
  • This plan builds on the key programs of work and directional change of the last 3 year plan. It has been constructed in consultation with farmers and representative bodies and provides a focus of effort and expenditure on those matters that the industry sees as important.
  • The plan retains its focus on building the foundations to support resilience and growth.
  • Our core priorities are clear and concise: making farm businesses more profitable and competitive; growing people skills and capability; and protecting and promoting our industry.
