Dairy’s Big Day Out in Western Vic
Posted on Thursday, August 13, 2015 - Category: In the News
The Western Victorian district dairy industry is set to be pumped full of inspiration at an event focussed on positivity and capacity building this September.
The inaugural Dairy Inspire, held in conjunction with the Milk-it-for-More workshops and Profitable Feeding Systems Expo, has been dubbed ‘Dairy’s big day out’ and looks at filling the attending farmers and industry leaders with inspiring stories focussed on resilience, positivity, successful goal building and strategy, market growth and essential communication tools.
Sponsored by the Gardiner Dairy Foundation and WestVic Dairy, the ‘big day out’ is aimed at giving farmers the tools to increase personal capacity and on-farm profitability.
WestVic Dairy Executive Officer Paula Doran said the event on September 2 was firming up to be a significant event on the dairy calendar.
“It’s a mixed bag full of insights to build the skills of our farmers into the future with the over-arching theme of how to make the most of the opportunities we have before us,” Ms Doran said.
Analyst Michael Harvey from Rabobank will speak about short term commodity insights and futurist Paul Higgins will talk about future trends for the coming decades and beyond.
Tanami cowboy Rob Cook will talk about his near-fatal chopper crash on his remote Alice Springs property, and his journey back to life-on-the-land as a tetraplegic, and the resilience and fighting spirit that got him there.
Ms Doran said the day celebrated the dairy industry and the drive for growth, culminating in a dinner in Camperdown that day.
