DairySA – your Regional Development Program
DairySA is one of eight Dairy Australia (DA) Regional Development Programs (RDPs) that operate in the
nation’s key dairying areas. DairySA, operating since 1996, develops strategic direction for South Australian dairy research, development and extension (RD&E) programs. The organisation invests in a range of projects that align to its key priorities. DairySA actively seeks investment partners and funding opportunities to assist in the delivery of dairy based RD&E programs. DairySA monitors the success of these projects and their ability to make tangible industry returns on investment.
DairySA works closely with farm policy organisations, government agencies, milk processors, other RDPs and the dairy service industry to identify and develop priorities for the development and sustainability of the state’s dairy industry.
DairySA is governed by an industry-based board with no less than four farmer representatives. Government, processors and business are also represented with all members having a strong understanding of the industry and a passion for dairy development and sustainability in the state.
