Highlighting innovation in the north

By Dairy News

ORGANISERS OF the inaugural Northern Australian Dairy Conference are considering holding it as an annual event following its success.

The two-day conference, held in Gatton last month, showcased the latest innovation in forage management, herd nutrition and health, breeding and reproduction, markets and drones.

More than 100 delegates heard how these technologies and approaches are challenging the status quo of the traditional northern Australian dairy farm.

Tours were held at Chris and Andrew Mullins’ farm at Allora, and the Bourke family farm at Gladfield.

The conference was hosted by Subtropical Dairy.
