Tatura Milk’s parent company, Bega Cheese, has officially launched a $25
The two programs are designed to find more milk and improve on-farm environmental sustainability. The incentives could run to tens of thousands of dollars for average-sized Goulburn Valley farms.
Farmers who became involved in the projects would be required to sign up for a three-year commitment.
Bega chief executive officer Aiden Coleman believes northern Victoria and the southern Riverina are capable of producing more milk and returning to the pre-drought days when the region was among the top producing areas of Australia.
He said since the draft program was outlined in April the two aspects had been finalised with input from suppliers. He said there had been a lot of interest from suppliers in both developing environmental sustainable projects and projects to produce more milk.
Bega Cheese is encouraging farmers to invest the money into on-farm projects such as energy and irrigation efficiency upgrades, increased tree planting, dairy shed expansion or purchasing more cows for the herd.
Bega Cheese has allocated the $25
The implementation of the programs will occur in two parts over the next three years, with a lump sum being paid to Bega and Tatura Milk suppliers. New suppliers can also participate.
