A South Australian Dairy Summit is planned for Monday, March 1, to look at how the industry can help contribute to the state's economic growth.
The event is being driven by the SA Dairyfarmers' Association, the SA Government and the Dairy Industry Association of Australia.
It will look at how the dairy industry can contribute to the SA Government's 2019 aim of lifting overall gross state product by 3 per cent.
It will also assess progress on the South Australian Dairy Industry Action Plan 2019 -2024, which was launched in March 2019.
The first SA Dairy Summit was held in November 2019 using the action plan as the base document.
The second summit aims to examine the outcomes from the first summit on all elements of the dairy industry value chain to improve the performance of the dairy industry in SA.
