Who we are
The South Australian Dairyfarmers Association (SADA) is the peak body for South Australian dairy farmers since 1936, with dairy farmer members and their issues being our focus. Through SADA dairy farmers have a strong voice locally in South Australia and also nationally with the Australian Dairy Farmers Ltd.
The South Australian dairy industry is one of South Australia's major agricultural industries. Dairy products are sold locally in South Australia as well as interstate and exported overseas. Dairy is now Australia's third largest agricultural industry, with South Australia producing nearly 10% of Australia’s total production.
SADA represents dairy farmers on a range of issues to state and local government, the dairy industry and the wider community. SADA provides dairy farmers with a voice on issues as diverse as electricity pricing, animal health and natural resource management.
SADA membership keeps members in touch with their local dairy community and up-to-date on the most important issues facing the industry and their farm businesses.
SADA has a proud record of working constructively with government and dairy industry organisations to achieve positive outcomes for all dairy farmers, including assisting farmers with seasonal variations, advocacy on animal welfare and a variety of farm business issues. Today, our members continue to work towards the vision of making Dairying - efficient, clever, innovative and sustainable.
