Australian Dairy Conference

ADC commissioned work

Since its inception ADC has developed a reputation for being an organisation that is staunchly independent, free from the pressures of any group or sponsor.  It has done this whilst building and maintaining the upmost respect from the same groups. The aim of these reports is to highlight aspects of the dairy industry issue in focus from an independent farmer’s perspective and to provide profile, direction, commentary and prominence at the ADC Conference presentation.
