Dairy pathways project
The Dairypathways project is a partnership between NSW DPI and Dairy Australia. It has been designed in conjunction with industry through the Dairy Industry Development Corporation (DIDCo), Sub Tropical Dairy and Murray Dairy. It is about delivering extension activities and tools that will enhance dairy farmers’ (and service providers’) capacity to analyse and implement cost-effective technologies and introduce sustainable production systems.
Dairypathways vision: The whole NSW dairy industry, with strong leadership from NSW Department of Primary Industries, developing and delivering an extension service focused on improving dairy business performance, using management systems and appropriate technologies that enhance the physical, environmental and social sustainability of NSW dairy businesses.
The Dairypathways Workplan for 2005-2008, available for download (see below), is an overview of the intentions of the Dairypathways project and a summary of the detailed submission forwarded to Dairy Australia and key NSW industry stakeholders.
Dairy Pathways 2
This video (available below) features members of the NSW Department of Primary Industries’ Dairy Industry Group outlining the activities and products developed within the project Dairy Pathways Phase 2, a project designed to deliver extension services to meet NSW dairy farmers’ needs. The video technology is simply another medium by which NSW DPI can communicate to its stakeholders in the NSW dairy industry the degree of success that the project achieved while at the same time informing Dairy Australia that it valuable funding support contributed to a series of significant outcomes.
