Workshops give chance to plan

By Country News

Murray Dairy is hosting five workshops across the region to give dairy farmers an opportunity to discuss how they are planning for the season ahead.

Each workshop will be facilitated by a Murray Dairy extension officer along with a host dairy farmer who will provide real data to enter into the Murray Dairy business tool program.

This information will be used to analyse different decisions that the host dairy farmer is planning for the coming year, and the effect this may have on their business.

Attendees will have the chance to gain a better understanding of Murray Dairy’s business tools and other resources, support the decision-making process using real numbers, explore how other farmers are planning for the current season and find out about organisations that can help with planning.

The workshops will be held at:

■Koondrook — August 28 at Koondrook Tennis Club from 11am to 2pm;

■Finley — August 28 at Finley RSL from 7pm to 9.30pm;

■Katandra — August 29 at Katandra West Football Club from 11am to 2pm;

■Kyabram — August 31 at Kyabram Club from 11am to 2pm; and

■Tallangatta — September 7 at Tallangatta Valley Hall from 11am to 2pm.
