Glorious Gippsland for National Awards Dinner and AGM
This year Holstein Australia is heading to Inverloch for its Annual General Meeting and National Awards Night to be held at the RACV Inverloch Resort near Cape Paterson on Wednesday 18 September.
Gippsland is at the heart of Australia’s dairy industry producing over 1.9 billion litres of milk annually, around 22% of national milk output. Hosted by South Gippsland Sub-Branch, the program has been designed as a relaxing opportunity to spend time with other Holstein enthusiasts, with the AGM to be held on Wednesday morning followed by the Holstein Australia Online Showcase Sale, held in conjunction with Dairy Livestock Services and Elite Livestock Auctions.
To guarantee your place download the registration form and return it to the Holstein Australia office by Friday 30th August.
Event Update - Guest Speaker Announced - South Gippsland Sub-Branch have announced guest speaker, Beau Vernon. Sadly at the age of 23 a tackle on the footy field that went horribly wrong resulted in quadriplegia. Two years later he was coaching Leongatha, his former club, taking them to three Grand Finals and the Premiership flag in 2017, repeating the feat for his hometown club, Phillip Island, last season. He’s a local legend and an inspiration and is looking forward to sharing his story during the awards dinner.
Those who don’t wish to attend the formal proceedings have the option of taking a half day tour of Meeniyan and surrounds on the Wednesday morning, returning in time for the sale.
The much-much anticipated Annual Awards Night will be held on Wednesday evening, hosted by South Gippsland Sub-Branch.
A tour on Thursday will venture slightly further afield, visiting picturesque Phillip Island and the Nobbies, and will include a leisurely lunch.
