Burnett Mary Reef Partnership - Dairy

Dairying is a significant industry in the Burnett Mary Region; there are over 200 milk producers. The dairy industry is represented by one partner in the Burnett Mary Reef Partnership, supported by the Burnett Mary Regional Group. 

Sustainable Dairying & Support for Dairy Farmers

Through the Burnett Mary Reef Partnership and with investment from the Australian Government's  Reef Programme, dairy farmers in the region are able to access support to improve land management. This investment will support activities which improve farm sustainability and improve reef water quality by reducing nutrient and sediment loss. 

If you are a dairy farmer in the Mary River Catchment, you may be eligible for financial assistance to carry out a variety of property improvements. Your eligibility will depend on the type of activities you wish to undertake.
