NSW dairy industry strategic action plan 2016

This action plan has emerged from a strong collective sense amongst industry stakeholders within NSW that:

  1. there is a need to grow the NSW dairy industry for the benefit of industry participants and the citizens of NSW, and;
  2. there is a need for collective effort to drive the change required.

Key industry stakeholders acknowledge that there is currently a broad suite of activity in the industry, guided by a range of existing strategies.

The aim of this plan is to not replicate activity, rather fast-track the delivery of these through collective action in shared areas of priority and benefit.

NSW Dairy Farm Monitor Project

The NSW Dairy Farm Monitor Project (DFMP) provides profitability and productivity data for a range of farms across New South Wales.

It allows farmers to compare their performance against other farms, and identify areas for improvement. DFMP is a joint initiative between the NSW Department of Primary Industries, Dairy Australia and the Department of Environment and Primary Industries Victoria.
