New South Wales dairy farmers can now access free one-on-one sessions with experienced advisors as part of Dairy NSW’s response to current challenging conditions.

The feed planning one-on-one sessions will help farm families work through key decisions and identify support available. The sessions are confidential and personalised to reflect each individual farmer’s situation.

Dairy NSW Executive Officer, April Browne, said “We are providing advice and information to assist farmers with feed and business decisions, as well as ensuring farmers have access to mental health and resilience programs, and Government support packages.”

Farmers interested in the feed planning one-on-one sessions can call April and the DairyNSW team on 1-800 270 778 or email info@dairynsw.com.au to register or request more information.

Further drought-response activities from Dairy NSW and industry partners include feedbase roundtable events where farmers can discuss strategies about feed planning, feed budgeting and developing feed rations in drought conditions. More information available at NSW Feed Shortage.

Events on how to access Government funding and the types of support packages available will also be held and social events will soon be announced to bring farmers together.

“Tough times take their toll physically and mentally – staying connected with your community and other farmers and professional health care providers in this environment is important,” April said.

“Get involved and connect with Dairy NSW and our events and stay supported with the wider farming community.”
