Specific Gippsland Information

The dairy industry in Gippsland faces its own set of challenges relating to climate variability and climate change, with a feedbase dominated by perennial ryegrass based pastures and purchased concentrates. These challenges are explored though climate and pasture predictions (for 2030 and 2070), farmer case studies, FRDS virtual events, and information about potential on-farm responses.
