A man who died at a dairy farm in Mooroopna on Friday afternoon has been identified as Jonathan Odgers, 23.

He was working at his family's 700-cow dairy in Lilford Rd, when it is believed he became trapped under machinery just before 4 pm.

He died at the scene, and his death is not being treated as suspicious.

Shepparton Search and Rescue was also at the scene.
