Central West Dairy Group &
Wagga Inland Dairy Network

Role/Purpose

These two dairy groups represent the interests of approximately 40 dairy farming families regarding research, development, extension and education primarily through the provision of locally delivered on-farm services and professional liaison with Dairy NSW, Dairy Australia and key industry stakeholders.

 

Geographic Area

These groups cover inland farming regions of NSW. The Central West Dairy Group supports farms from the Dubbo dairy subregion through to Forbes and along the river basin from Cowra to Condobolin. Whilst dairy farms in the south west region of NSW located in the surrounds (30km) of Wagga Wagga and Tumut are supported by the Wagga Inland Dairy Network.
 

Activities

These two groups regularly deliver a range of industry activities to promote profitable and sustainable dairying, mostly in conjunction with supporting industry stakeholders. Topics of interest range from on-farm production issues, to natural resource management, animal welfare, business management to farmer health and well-being.

The Wagga Inland Dairy Network enjoys a special working relationship with Charles Sturt University, particularly in the delivery of on-farm research, technical information delivery and various student support activities.
