The Situation and Outlook report analyses current dairy market conditions and the outlook for key drivers that impact the Australian dairy industry.

In our latest report, you'll discover:

  • Australian milk production is up 3% for the first half of the 2017/18 season as a result of improved weather in most regions, and incrementally higher milk prices.

  • Slower milk production in NZ and good import demand have helped support commodity prices in the short term, but the fundamentals point to significant downside risk for prices in the months ahead.

  • Recent announcements of investment in Australian processing assets are encouraging signs of industry confidence, however key to ongoing success will be the ability of processors to support and grow a profitable milk supply base to capture the full potential of their manufacturing footprint.
