Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - NEWS - Sam Gibbs

The an­nual West­ern Dairy spring fo­rum and an­nual gen­eral meet­ing was held at the Qual­ity Ho­tel Light­house Re­sort re­cently, bring­ing to­gether farmers and agri­cul­tural lead­ers from across the coun­try.

West­ern Dairy chair­man Grant Evans said the event was the re­sult of a year’s work, re­search and ex­ten­sion pro­grams.

“All our team have put up re­ports and it’s to show­case to the in­dus­try the find­ings and where the projects are at,” Mr Evans said.

“It’s what farmers want, it’s what farmers ask for and now it’s get­ting de­liv­ered and they can take home what they want.

“It’s a great day for farmers to come and learn and see where their levies are be­ing spent.”

The fo­rum fea­tured pre­senta- tions in­clud­ing the re­sults of the WA Seed Per­for­mance Tri­als by West­ern Dairy’s Peter Hut­ton and an early as­sess­ment of this year’s dairy farm per­for­mance from Kirk Reynolds.

Hu­man re­sources con­sul­tant and au­thor Mandy John­son kicked off the event with a pre­sen­ta­tion on the seven steps to build­ing a re­mark­able work­place.
