Annual Operating Plan
Dairy Australia’s Annual Operating Plan (AOP) for the 2019–20 financial year (FY20) shows that Dairy Australia is responding to a challenging environment for the dairy industry.
The AOP is the result of extensive consultation and feedback from farmers, government and representative bodies.
Demand for dairy products remains strong and the export market is balanced, but high costs and challenging seasonal conditions on-farm are expected for at least the first half of FY20.
All activities and income of Dairy Australia have been reviewed and expenditure has been reduced. Investments have been prioritised to deliver on each strategic priority; Profitable Dairy Farms, Capable People and Trusted Dairy Industry. Major projects are on track to deliver long-term goals and gains for farmers.
Dairy Australia’s current Strategic Plan has been extended for 12 months (until the end of FY20) as the industry develops the Australian Dairy Plan, which will guide Dairy Australia’s next strategic plan.
