International Dairy Week has launched a new podcast called “Around the Barn” in the lead up to the 2022 International Dairy Week (IDW) to celebrate the Dairy Industry.
The first episode was released last week and all participants featured in Episode #1 are Holstein Australia members.
Around the Barn Host Casey Treloar spoke with IDW Australian Grand Champion Cow winners Matt and Nicola Templeton of South West Gippsland about their success in the show ring.
Ms Treloar was also joined by Semex Representative Vaughn Johnston and National Judge Jade Seiben who was announced later in the show as the Judge of the 2022 IDW All Breeds Youth Show.
Holstein Australia Board Director Gino Pacitti will feature in Episode #2 which is set to be released on the Thursday the 30th of September.
In the upcoming show, Mr Pacitti gets candid about the impacts that COVID-19 has had on the industry and focuses on Youth and the Holstein Community.
Around the Barn will be released fortnightly featuring sponsors, special industry guests, exhibitors and an IDW Judge will be revealed in each show.
IDW Director Declan Patten says the main purpose of the podcast is to bring exposure to both the event and sponsors as they aim to grow IDW into a celebration of the Dairy Industry.
“We started the podcast because we wanted to connect with the wider dairy community and celebrate it as a dairy industry event” said Mr Patten.
“We also want to promote the people who support the industry and bring exposure to the event as a Dairy Showcase” said Mr Patten.
