Take nutrition to next level

Are you a Gippsland dairy farmer or adviser who already has a solid grasp of dairy nutrition and feeding management and are now looking to take your capabilities to a higher level?

If so, the Advanced Nutrition in Action training program might be just what you are looking for. The goal of the program is to enable you to improve herd nutrition practices on-farm by providing you with the technical knowledge, problem solving and strategic planning skills, and tools to develop and implement appropriate, nutrition-related management strategies which support your personal and business goals.

Participants will be selected based on their existing level of knowledge. This will be tested by a short online quiz.

The course, which will require fees to be paid by participants, will be broken into three two day workshops spread over 15 weeks.

Expressions of interest are needed by January, 31.

Places are capped at 18. Phone 56243900 or email for more details.

How job ready are you?

The world of share farming and leasing will be put under the microscope at an upcoming Stepping Up Stepping Back workshop.

Led by John Mulvany, the program will go through the pros and cons of the two options and help participants decide if either is the right choice for them.

The workshop will be suitable for farmers considering transitioning out of their current role in the industry or those trying to get a foot in the door through share-farming or leasing.

The workshop will be held on February 22. No location has been decided, so contact Leah Maslen to register your interest in holding it in your local area.
