Surplus Calves Taskforce

ADF seeks top people to join a skills-based group tasked with recommending a policy for managing surplus calves in the Australian dairy industry.

Introduction

Australian Dairy Farmers (ADF) is seeking expressions of interest from suitable people to join a skills-based group tasked with recommending a policy for managing surplus calves in the Australian dairy industry.

This work follows the ADF Dairy Beef Forum in July 2021. This forum explored current information, research and business opportunities for surplus calves in Australia – the recordings are available here.

Establishing a policy on surplus calves is a priority in the ADF Strategic Plan. The Surplus Calves Taskforce will explore the surplus calves issue, consult with industry, and develop and recommend a policy to the ADF Board.

ADF is seeking expressions of interest from individuals from across the dairy beef supply chain (farmers, industry members, consultants etc.) who have skills and experience in managing surplus calves.

The ADF Board will appoint the members of the taskforce, including the Chair and Deputy Chair.

It is expected the taskforce will meet several times during the period, December 2021 and May 2022.  The taskforce’s work will be supported by an ADF secretariat, as well as ADF and Dairy Australia staff.
