Call goes out for GippsDairy board members
GippsDairy is looking for new board members.
GippsDairy works with farmers to improve production, manage their business and be employers of choice in a highly competitive employment market.
GippsDairy also assists with identifying regional priorities, developing strategic and operating plans for the dairy sector.
“We’re basically a service that aids farmers to be the best they can at one level, and a platform for identifying some of the ‘bigger picture’ aspects of ensuring the sector is sustainable at the other,” GippsDairy executive officer Karen McLennan said.
“At the farm gate level introducing farmers to innovation, helping them be across employment regulations or hosting discussion groups around fodder, raising calves or automatic milking machines, that’s our ballpark.”
The positions are open to farm owners, share farmers or farm managers with demonstrated skills, commitment and experience in the Gippsland dairy industry.
As well as dairy farmer board vacancies, GippsDairy is also seeking one specialist director, not a dairy farmer, who has skills and experience in finance, economics, legal or business management.
Applications close August 31. For more details phone 5624 3900.
