Dairy Australia - Dairy information for Australian Dairy Farmers and the industry

Primary content

The Great South West Dairy Awards will return in March 2020.

The Gala evening, which is now held biennially, will once again acknowledge and celebrate those who are achieving great things in our industry.

A new category, ‘Dairy Farm Business Management Award’, has been added to the program. It will become the premier Award of the evening and combines three previous categories - Farm Business Manager Award, Employer Award and Share Farmer Award.

Applications are now open, please consider who you think is deserving of a nomination in one or more of the following categories:

In a change to the nomination process, you can download the application form and give it to the person you wish to nominate. Alternatively, you can encourage people to complete the application form themselves. Remembering of course that you can put yourself forward for an Award, simply download, complete and then return your form.

Generally, farmers and those working in the dairy industry can be reluctant to put themselves forward for this kind of recognition – often not considering what they are doing to be anything special. However, we strongly encourage people to consider applying, as an industry we should be celebrating our achievements and be proud of the work we do.

Sponsorship packages are available for businesses that would like to be involved in the Gala evening.

You can download application forms by clicking on the relevant Award from the list above. If you need any help or guidance with the application/nomination process, or you would like to know more about sponsorship packages, please contact our Project Officer, Liza Fahey on 0408 141 820 or 5557 1000.
