Specific WA Information

The dairy industry in Western Australia faces its own set of challenges relating to climate variability, climate change and rising energy/fertiliser prices, with a feedbase dominated by annual ryegrass based pastures and purchased concentrates. These challenges are explored though, farmer case studies, FRDS virtual events, and information about potential on-farm responses.
