The Senate inquiry into the Australian dairy industry has held hearings around the country.

The report from the Senate inquiry into the Australian dairy industry has been delayed again.

The inquiry was initially due to report by February 24, but was granted an extension firstly to March 30, then to May 11 and then to June 29.

It has now been guaranteed a further extension until August 10.

The inquiry was attempting to find solutions to Australia’s dairy crisis.

In September, crossbench senators Jacqui Lambie and Nick Xenophon put forward the motion calling for the inquiry into the industry’s issues, which was agreed following a series of amendments.

The inquiry was set up to establish a fair, long-term solution to Australia’s dairy crisis, with particular reference to fresh milk security and:

  • The legality of retrospective elements of milk contracts.
  • The behaviour of Murray Goulburn.
  • Any other related matters.
  • The inquiry has held a series of hearings across the country in which it has delved into farmgate pricing and contracts and the influence of supermarkets.
