Dairy Australia is the Australian national body for the dairy industry, and a Research and development corporation (RDC). It is mainly funded by the Dairy Services Levy, a tax paid by farmers based on milk production. It also acts as a funding body through which the federal Department of Agriculture provides funding for rural research and development in Australia. Dairy Australia also attracts funding at project level from state governments, universities, research organisations and other dairy support organisations. It was previously known as the Dairy Research & Development Corporation.
