Van Dairy Ltd

Trading as VDL Farms

The farm of Van Dairy (formerly known as Moon Lake) is located in Tasmania, the smallest state in southern Australia and the only island state in the Commonwealth of Australia. It is located 240 km (150 mi) to the south of Victoria, separated by the Bass Strait and Tasman Sea (situated between Australia and New Zealand). Tasmania covers less than 1% of the continent’s total area but holds 12% of its total water resources. Bestowed with unique geographic characteristics, Tasmania has come to be known as “the heart of the world” due to its unmistakably heart-shaped appearance. Tasmania is also known as "Australia's New Zealand" because of its proximity in distance and climate with the South Pacific nation.

Benefiting from Tasmania’s abundant rainfall and natural environment, which is highly suitable for pasture growth and dairy farming, the fat and protein content of milk produced in Tasmania is the highest in Australia, higher than the major milk- producing state of Victoria.

Most of the Van Dairy’s farms are situated in the Woolnorth area, which is widely regarded for its impeccable air quality. And being ideally located between 40°and 43.5°in southern latitude, Woodnorth’s dairy is, as a result, is of equally impeccable quality.

Van Dairy covers an area of 17,000 hectares and is located in the northwest region of Tasmania. As Australia's oldest pasture, it is endowed with a rich historical heritage that lives on to this day.

The farm is also home to one of the three United Nations environmental meteorological air monitoring stations. The PM2.5 monitoring value here scores at 0 for over 200 days per year, a standing as a testament to its ideal situation for dairy farming. Both the pastures and the cows benefit from this pure land, giving VAN fresh milk a unique advantage.

Farming scale: 13 dairy farms, 1 dairy support center and 1 independent heifer feeding center. Currently, there are nearly 30,000 cattles in the farm, and annual milk production can reach up to 80 million liters.

This upcoming spring calving season we are expecting to milk 11000 cows. With 2300 cows expected to calve from pregnancy testing, which also includes replacement heifers.
