Western Dairy's 'Talking Weather' roadshow took workshops to Dardanup, Busselton and Denmark in early December 2019.

Special guest speakers, Northern Victorian dairy farmers Susan and Peter Wearden, shared the dramatic challenges that forced them to review and change the way they do business.

Attending dairy farmers also heard from DPIRD climate scientists Dr Ian Foster and Dr Meredith Guthrie on important climate trends and predictions, and PlanFarm grain market advisor Nic Sewell on the grain market forecast.

Smart Cow Consulting's Dario Nandapi and Western Dairy's Jess Andony shared the latest advice and research on keeping cows cool over the hot summer period.
