Dairy Research Foundation’s 2016 Symposium


Wednesday 15th June - Friday 17th June 2016

In 2016 the DRF Symposium team will be on the hunt for new efficiencies in dairying. This year we take the opportunity to look outside the box and draw on expertise from other industries to help us to determine potential for efficiency gains in our dairy farming systems.

To do this, we are taking the Symposium to Wagga Wagga NSW on the 15-17th June. Day 1 will be an industry day with NSWFA, Dairy Connect and Dairy NSW Members’ Council meetings and an open forum. Day 2 will be held on the CSU campus in Wagga Wagga and Day 3 will see the group attending a local farm.

Its common knowledge that growth in any industry is of the highest priority and in 2015 we explored different areas of growth in the dairy industry. There is no one size fits all answer for dairy farmers but a series of small, seemingly inconsequential changes on farm may help take your business to the next level!

If you missed the event, take a look at the 2015 proceedings listed on our Publications page (link below).

The 2015 Proceedings is available for download on the following page DRF PUBLICATIONS
