The dairy industry is a jewel in Tasmania’s economic crown. This sector is an area of massive potential economic growth and development. White milk, cheese and milk powder is growing the wealth of our rural communities, with multinational processors and family run companies vying for milk from across the State.

The cattle, from the mainly friesian and jersey cow herds, breathe some of the world’s cleanest air, and eat some of the cleanest and most sustainable pastures. The agricultural systems employed in Tasmania are also the envy of the dairying world.

The TFGA’s Dairy Council is a passionate advocate for the Tasmanian dairy industry and for TFGA members. The TFGA Dairy Council works closely with all levels of government, through and with peak industry bodies. The TFGA Dairy Council is made of, and directed by Tasmanian dairy farmers, these TFGA members are shaping the future of Tasmania’s dairy industry.
