Dairy Australia - Dairy information for Australian Dairy Farmers and the industry

Primary content

Dairy Australia supports farmers in building skills of their people on-farm.

Farmers require people who work on farms to have higher skill levels and expertise than ever before due to technological advancements and the need to monitor farm inputs, animal care, milk quality, managing environmental credentials, and other aspects of dairy.

Dairy Australia provides resources and course content to registered training providers to educate and develop skills for people entering or in the industry.
