Australian dairy industry

National milk production increased by 0.7% in 2020/21, reaching 8.8 billion litres. Favourable weather conditions resulted in a close to record large winter crop harvest and plentiful pasture. Combined with a strong farmgate milk price, the majority of farmers reported an operating profit.


In 2020/21, our revenue of $63.6m was obtained primarily through the dairy service levy and Commonwealth Government funding for eligible research and development activities.

Funding allocation

In 2020/21, our funding of $62.3m was allocated across our strategic priorities, which guide program and project delivery, and include:
