Posted on Tuesday, March 01, 2016 - Category: In the News
Are you a member of Australian Dairy Farmers (ADF) interested in making a contribution to policy for our industry? There are two weeks left to register your expression of interest in joining one of ADF’s Policy Advisory Groups (PAGs):
- Markets, Trade and Value Chain;
- People and Human Capacity;
- Animal Health and Welfare;
- Farming Systems and Herd Improvement; and
- Natural Resources.
PAGs play a key role in setting business objectives for our industry and driving policy formulation. They help to ensure dairy interests are properly represented
at a domestic and international level.
ADF President, Simone Jolliffe said the role of the PAGs was critical to policy formulation for the long-term future of dairy.
“We face many challenges as an industry and have always relied on the vision, passion and participation of people within dairy to help find viable solutions,” said Mrs Jolliffe.
ADF PAGs recommend policy settings to the ADF via the National Council and also act in an advisory capacity providing feedback to Dairy Australia, state dairy farmer organisations (SDFOs) and other bodies like the National Farmers Federation and the Australian Dairy Products Federation.
Mrs Jolliffe welcomed and encouraged direct involvement from dairy farmers to drive policy in the right direction.
Expressions of interest close Friday 18 March 2016. For more information and to receive an application form contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
