The Western Dairy Young Dairy Network (YDN) aims to build the capacity of young dairy people by developing their knowledge, skills and networks. 

Western Dairy YDN membership is free and open to dairy farm owners and leaseholders, farm managers and workers, industry service providers, as well as university and TAFE students between the ages of 18 and 35 years. Young prospective dairy people are also encouraged to join. 

The WA network hosts a range of educational and social events throughout the year (many of which are no or low-cost) including agribusiness workshops, technical workshops, interstate study tours, local farm walks, networking dinners and quiz nights. 

The calendar of events is managed by Western Dairy YDN Regional Coordinator Roxy Schoof and opportunities are shared direct with members and via the Western Dairy YDN Facebook group. Members also receive information and opportunities through the national YDN network.
