Specific Tasmanian Information

The dairy industry in Tasmania faces its own set of challenges relating to climate variability and climate change, though the feedbase challenges may be less than for other regions. However, rising energy and fertiliser prices and seasonal variability are challenging enough. 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.

How to use map search

All the regional content for Tasmania is available from the map, with different coloured flags for the different types of content – for example, all the farmer case studies have red flags. In most cases the flags have been located on the map as near as possible to the location where the information came from or where the event was held. Click on the flags to get more information and zoom in if there is too much overlap on the flags.
