More Money Going into Australia's Dairy Future

06 November 2013

AUSTRALIA – Research and Development funding increase over 2012/13 to A$58.2 million, levy board Dairy Australia has announced.

This is 10 per cent increase on the previous financial in funding to support the future of dairy farming.

Dairy Australia also notified its members of the annual general meeting (AGM) scheduled to take place in Melbourne on 29 November.

“The AGM is not only an opportunity for Dairy Australia members to see how their levy has been spent over the past 12 months, but also a chance to vote on some important recommendations for change in the organisation’s constitution,” said Max Roberts, Dairy Australia Chair.

"An increase of farmer representatives on the board from three directors to four, and a limiting of Directors’ tenure to a maximum of three three year terms are two of the most important recommendations, on which members will be able to cast their vote, flowing from the Constitutional Review process,” he said.
