Bovine dairy farmer licence renewals

This year, improvements to our licensing management system enabled us to utilise the milk supply data provided by dairy manufacturers with the submission of dairy farmer licence fees, to efficiently review the activity of each dairy farmer licensee and automatically renew active, eligible suppliers.

Licensees that appear to have ceased milk supply will be contacted over the next couple of months. If you have not already done so, please notify us in writing (email This email address is being protected from spambots.
