Tactics for tight times

GippsDairy and Dairy Australia are collaborating with the wider dairy industry to deliver a series of “finances, feed and friends” workshops.

These workshops are in response to seasonal and market conditions being experienced by Gippsland dairy farmers.

The Tactics for Tight Times program will build on the GippsDairy seasonal response effort to date. The “finances, feed and friends” workshops focus on understanding the options dairy farmers have, the tactics they can use and the decisions they need to make to work through the challenging conditions.

Finances, feed and friends workshops include:

  • immediate actions for farmers and calculation of break-even milk price
  • cash flow management strategies
  • maximizing home grown pasture and feeding options
  • animal health over winter
  • panel assessment with a consultant, banker, farmer and industry representative
  • farmer health and well being

These workshops will be held in Gippsland on the following dates.
