SA Dairy Action Plan

Posted on April 12, 2019


As the international market place becomes more competitive and pressure grows for an increasingly global world for all forms of dairy produce smaller jurisdictions have to assert themselves to get foothold in the industry.

South Australian dairy is uniquely poised to carve out a niche in the global market place by placing itself at the front of the premium market. There is little doubt that South Australia will not be able to occupy a commanding space in the commodity supply chain, primarily because of its size. While we can participate in the commodity markets there is an opportunity in South Australia to pursue something different and special.

The dairy farmer in South Australia produces their milk in a near pristine environment with farmers’ properties presenting to the world a splendid visage of contented cows producing the best milk in the world on farms that belong on postcards. This is a simple image to convey because it is true.

This plan seeks to highlight this truth and present to the world a premium jurisdiction that produces a premium product.

As the President of the South Australian Dairyfarmers’ Association I proudly attach my organisation’s name to this plan as it is a document which can galvanise the dairy farming community into sharing a vision for the future that places South Australia in a position of being second to none.
