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

Primary content

We work with agencies at the federal and state level, dairy farmers and companies to create the National Dairy Food Safety Regulatory Framework. Based on international codes and standards this framework requires that all across the supply chain take responsibility for food safety.

Regulatory framework

The National Dairy Food Safety Regulatory Framework is an integrated system involving federal and state regulatory agencies, dairy farmers, dairy companies and Dairy Australia.

International Codes and Standards provide a basis for this framework. As part of this framework, industry quality assurance programs require all sectors of the supply chain to take responsibility for food safety. Potential risks are monitored and the industry regularly updated.

Dairy biosecurity is vital for protecting your farm. Dairy farmers and their advisors now have access to a new online biosecurity tool to build their skills and adapt their management approach to biosecurity risks.

Hay and grain reports

The hay and grain report is commissioned by Dairy Australia to provide an independent and timely assessment of hay and grain markets in each dairying region. The report is updated 40 weeks per year.
