Mid Coast Dairy Advancement Group runs programs to support the region's dairy farmers
The Mid Coast Dairy Advancement Group (Mid Coast DAG) is the largest and oldest NSW regional dairy group. Mid Coast DAG works to ensure there is a strong communication channel in the region and creates informed opportunities for dairy farmers to meet at field days, farm tours, discussion groups, seminars or meetings.
Objectives of Mid Coast DAG are to:
Mid Coast DAG seeks to develop strong linkages across the industry, including all relevant dairy organisations such as Dairy Australia, Dairy NSW and Dairy Connect, local, state and federal governments, agencies and departments, water authorities, regional agribusiness and service providers.
The Mid Coast DAG region covers Gloucester, Great Lakes, Greater Taree, Hastings/Port Macquarie and Kempsey. Most dairies in our region are family-owned businesses and operate year round calving.
Many farms use an annual ryegrass pasture feedbase. Milk from the region is mostly sold into the NSW fresh milk market.
Mid Coast DAG supports training workshops to enhance dairy farmers’ skills across these areas:
