The People in Dairy
The People in Dairy program is designed to help farmers improve how they attract, deploy, retain and develop the people they need to achieve the strategic vision they have for their business. The resources on The People in Dairy website are designed especially to enable dairy farmers to get the best outcomes from the people in their business.
Young people in dairying
DairySA provides support for young people in dairying through programs such as the development of a SA young dairy network, the Moovers and Shakers forum, Don Campbell Memorial Tour and young farmer focus discussion groups.
Careers and education
Education and innovation are critical for the Australian dairy industry to continue to build the capability of its existing workforce and attract new skilled talent. Educating primary school students about the production and benefits of dairy foods is only the first of many steps to build interest in this dynamic industry.
In 2006, the dairy industry formed the National Centre for Dairy Education (NCDEA) in conjunction with Goulburn Ovens Institute of TAFE. The principal objective of the NCDEA is to deliver dairy farming and processing education and training programs across Australia through a network of providers, under the direction of local industry advisory committees. The delivery is structured to ensure resources and delivery are industry best practice and relevant to today’s needs of the industry.
NCDEA is now recognised as a leading initiative in modern industry education, setting new levels of excellence in education and training in dairy farming, manufacturing and processing with the aim to develop the best dairy people in the world. Visit the NCDEA website for more information.
