Welcome to the Australian Fodder Industry Association (AFIA)

We are pleased to welcome you as a member of the Australian Fodder Industry Association (AFIA) and look forward to working with you over the year ahead to ‘seize and solve’ – seize opportunities and solve challenges – to grow the industry.

AFIA is a central hub connecting the fodder supply chain across agriculture sectors and including governments. Since its establishment in 1996, AFIA has supported the growth of the sector through:

  • the generation and analysis of industry data;
  • hosting events to support connections, learning, engagement and information sharing;
  • engagement in research and development (R&D) priorities; and
  • industry advocacy to ensure a positive operating environment both locally and globally.

We believe the fodder industry is one of the most important industries in Australian agriculture, underpinning production in dairy, livestock, horticulture and other intensive industries and it is now a significant contributor to Australian exports.
