MDPB Plan explained . . .

We understand there is a lot of 'hoohaa' around the MDB Plan. Having reviewed much of the official information and commentary, SADA's understanding is that the changes will have limited impact on South Australian dairy farms although an increased use of water buybacks could impact the temporary and permanent water markets.

The changes do provide an opportunity for us to engage with both the SA and federal governments, to discuss possible solutions and innovative ways to achieve the goals of the plan.

One option that has been suggested is the re establishment of the 3IP program, we would welcome your thoughts / comments on this and any other solutions.

If you’re interested in more details regarding the changes, the federal department is hosting a webinar – Register here
