United Dairyfarmers of Victoria president Adam Jenkins has stood down from the role.

Mr Jenkins released a statement on Friday which said ‘‘it is important that the organisation and its members come first and I feel this change will ensure the UDV has a fresh approach and energetic leadership required to tackle issues and represent members heading into 2019’’.

The Australian Dairy Farmers thanked Mr Jenkins for fighting for the interests of dairy farmers and for his achievements during his four years in the role.

The UDV Policy Council will fill the role of president as a casual vacancy at its meeting on December 5.

It is expected the UDV Policy Council will call for an election for the post in May next year.
