A proposed plan to unify farmers and processors under one advocacy group has raised concerns amongst farmers.
The proposed plan from the Joint Transition Team appointed by the Australian Dairy Plan would see processors and farmers join one standard advocacy group.
Some farmers have raised concerns with the plan, saying it would prevent them from lobbying for better deals from processors in the future.
Tasmanian Farmers and Graziers Association Dairy Council chair Jeff Cox said it's important to remember the deal is a long way away from being implemented.
