The Dairy Futures CRC invests in large-scale research projects to deliver improved pasture and animal options. They recently launched their web site.
The CRC is a large-scale partnership between dairy farmers, pasture and cattle breeding companies, government and researchers.
It continues a strong history of dairy industry and government investment in breakthrough technology, and will work with a broad range of new ‘bio’ sciences to deliver real gains for dairy farmers.
Investment ranges from new genetic technology, through to activities that best position each innovation to capture value at farm, factory and community levels. Improvements in pasture cultivars and breeding dairy cattle are expected to deliver $320 million in value for dairy farmers.
