Victoria's dairy exports were valued at $1.85 billion in 2012–13, with dairy products exported to almost 100 countries. In 2011-12 there were approximately 5,463 agricultural properties carrying over 1.7 million dairy cattle.
Export successes are mainly due to the industry's efficient, pasture-based dairy farms, the availability of grain as a cost-effective feed supplement and a progressive and efficient processing sector that researches and develops products to suit customer needs.
We aim to enable a sustainable and productive dairy community through leadership, practice change and innovation.
We work collaboratively with the dairy industry to help it remain competitive in the global export market. We can provide you with a range of services that will help you in the ongoing management and growth or your business.
We also help the industry with adapting to climate variability, and with biosecurity and emergency management. Our work also helps to ensure the health and welfare of your animals, and manage your pastures, water, effluent and soils.
