Dairy Australia - Dairy information for Australian Dairy Farmers and the industry

Primary content

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

Situation and Outlook October 2018

The report found:

  • Continued increases in feed prices, together with tough seasonal conditions, have created extremely challenging circumstances for Australian farmers in 2018/19, and will likely see milk production fall.
  • Global dairy markets have been relatively benign and a depreciating Australian dollar has helped local farmgate prices, however some signs of weakening are present.
  • The Australian domestic market is delivering growth in both volume and value across most key categories, with flavoured milk and traditional yoghurts showing particular strength
