Alpine Valleys Dairy Inc.

Alpine Valleys Dairy inc (AVD) evolved from the Alpine Valleys Dairy Pathways project.

Due to a shared interest in the potential for milk growth in the Alpine region of north east Victoria, North East Murray Dairy, Dairy Australia, Murray Dairy, Agriculture Victoria, UDV, the Murray Goulburn Co-operative and rural municipalities of Towong Shire Council, Indigo Shire Council, Alpine Shire Council and the Rural City of Wangaratta came together to promote and enhance dairying in the region.

The project has identified extension activities, promotion of dairying opportunities, education, successful farm transitions and farm succession key components for securing the future of the dairy industry in the region.

AVD are led by a farmer chair, have farmer representatives from the Upper Murray, King, Kiewa, Tallangatta and Mitta Valleys to drive the agenda for the group and inform industry and government representatives on the issues and opportunities requiring their attention.
