Have you applied yet for round two of the WAFarmers Dairy Industry Fund? Applications close next month.
Round two will continue to support small and medium-scale projects that work towards the betterment of the WA dairy industry, all of which should improve productivity, performance, business growth and diversity of the industry and any part of its supply chain.
The project fund has seen money accrued through the sale of two litre bottles of full cream and hilo WAFarmersFirst Milk at Western Australian Coles Supermarkets, a percentage of which went directly into the fund.
What kinds of projects can the Dairy Industry Fund support?
The fund can support any small, medium or large projects, between the value of $1,000 and $20,000. Examples include supporting people to attend professional development conferences, investment in water and feed projects, and soil management or energy efficient technologies. All of these help people to develop their skills and business techniques, and work towards the betterment of the WA dairy industry.
