AUSTRALIAN Dairy Farmers (ADF) thanks outgoing United Dairyfarmers of Victoria (UDV) president Adam Jenkins for his service and commitment to the dairy industry.
Adam has been a dedicated fighter for the interests of Victorian dairy farmers and achieved some significant outcomes for the dairy industry during his time as UDV president.
Among his successes, Adam helped secure $970 million for regional Victoria as part of the $9.7 billion deal to lease the Port of Melbourne and lobbied the Victorian Government to invest $30 million to help farmers manage energy costs through improved efficiency and new technology.
Adam has also been a valuable contributor to ADF as a member of our National Council and Chair of our Markets, Trade and Value Chain Policy Advisory Group, leading discussions on a range of issues related to securing market access for dairy farmers.
We wish Adam all the best in his future endeavours and sincerely hope that he remains involved in dairy advocacy.
Adam has expressed his intention to step down in December 2018, and ADF now looks forward to working with the incoming leadership of the UDV.
