Each of the farms has now completed an energy audit and will be hosting a field day on April 3rd, 4th & 5th looking at the results including a cost-benefit analysis of the relevant options for minimising energy use.

All farmers are invited to attend one of the field days being held at Tatura, Bamawm and Girgarre.

Feedback from USA Farm Group Tour

Flyer US Feedback Night -Final


40 farmers recently toured Arizona and California to see first-hand some of the most efficient dairy farms in the southern USA. The tour focussed on a range of topics including feed storage, mixing and delivery, forage production and conservation, facility design, cow comfort, herd and people management systems.

Tour participants are going to share their thoughts and experiences with the wider dairying community at two evening events to be held at Tallangatta and Tocumwal. All are invited to attend either session to gain some insight into what we might learn from them.
