Introduction National Primary Industries Research Development and Extension Framework Through the Primary Industries Ministerial Council (PIMC), the states and Northern Territory, rural Research & Development Corporations, CSIRO, and universities are jointly developing the National Primary Industries Research, Development and Extension (RD&E) Framework to encourage greater collaboration and promote continuous improvement in the investment of RD&E resources nationally. This initiative was developed on the basis that Australia’s primary industries cannot afford a fragmented or duplicative RD&E system if they are to continue to be sustainably productive. Australia’s approximately $1.6 billion annual RD&E investment in primary industries needs to be focussed, used efficiently, effectively and collaboratively. The framework provides the structure and institutional arrangements needed to strengthen national research capability and better address cross sectoral and sectoral research and development. The Dairy Moving Forward (DMF) process is the dairy industry’s response to the PIMC initiative. The DMF initiative is to ensure that the dairy industry will have a more coordinated and collaborative approach to RD& E and that national research capability will be focussed, used efficiently, and effectively to achieve the best outcome and uptake by the industry. The governance of DMF is through the DMF Steering Committee. The DMF Steering Committee is Chaired by Australian Dairy Farmers and comprises: ›› Australian Dairy Farmers ›› Australian Dairy Products Federation ›› Dairy Australia ›› Department of Primary Industries Victoria ›› Geoffrey Gardiner Foundation ›› Universities involved in Dairy Research ›› Regional Development Victoria ›› Regional Development Programs ›› United Dairy Farmers Victoria.
