Dairy businessman David Beca, south-west dairy farmer Carlie Barry and Bega Valley dairy farmer Phil Ryan will be on the ballot for a spot on Dairy Australia's board, which will be voted on at this year's annual general meeting.

Nominations closed at the end of last month and six candidates will by vying for the three board director vacancies, which are due to the expiry of the terms of the three serving directors.

The available positions are two milk producer directors and one director of agribusiness, innovation and change management.

Half were nominated by the board itself and are looking for re-election, while the other three were supported by at least 100 farmer levy payers.

The full list of candidates are:

● Tania Luckin, who will stand for the milk producer director vacancy against Carlie Barry.

● Paul Roderick, who will stand for the milk producer director vacancy against Phil Ryan.

● Roseanne Healy, who will stand for the agribusiness, innovation and change management
director position against David Beca.

To be successfully elected into the three vacant director roles, each candidate will require
more than 50 per cent of the votes cast at the AGM to be held on November 27.
