The Australian Dairy Industry 2019/20

National milk production finished the year down only 0.2% on the prior year, at 8.8 billion litres - a tremendous result given the difficult start to the season. Good rainfall also helped soften key input costs and provided the opportunity for farms in many regions to make decent profits.

Our 2019/20 Revenue

Dairy Australia’s revenue is obtained primarily through the dairy service levy and Commonwealth Government funding for eligible Research and Development (R&D) activities.

Our Funding Allocation

Funding is allocated across the three strategic priorities (SP) that guide the programs and projects we deliver on the ground. These priorities are as follows:

  • Strategic Priority 1.1 (SP1.1) Profitable Dairy Farms – includes pre farmgate activities
  • Strategic Priority 1.2 (SP1.2) Profitable Dairy Farms – includes post farmgate activities 
  • Strategic Priority 2 (SP2) Capable People – focuses on education and training to enhance the capability of industry participants
  • Strategic Priority 3 (SP3) Trusted Dairy Industry – focuses on maintaining the industry’s long-term ‘social licence to operate’.

Chair's Report

2019/20 was a year of sharp contrasts, with a number of events which challenged the industry along with important developments which see us on a stronger footing.

Managing Director's Report

Dairy Australia has continued to deliver on being leaders in shaping the profitability and sustainability of the dairy industry.
