North East Dairy Growth Plan

North East Dairy Growth Plan

The Regional Growth Plan for the dairy industry in North East Victoria asserts that it is reasonable to plan for a significant increase in milk production from the Alpine Valleys of North East Victoria. This is based on the region’s natural biophysical advantages, demonstrated improvements in farming technologies and a strong outlook for the global dairy market ensuring a stable and favourable farm gate price for milk.

The objective of the North East Diary Growth Plan is to maximise the use of high quality land for dairy, respecting the needs and aspirations of the current owners. The key project goal  is to lift annual milk production from the region from 220 mega-litres to 400 mega-litres by 2025.

The Plan was launched at the 2014 Tallangatta Farm and Water Expo. Development of the Plan was strongly supported by the Alpine Valley Dairy Pathways Project Steering Committee.
