Young people with an interest in the dairy and fodder industries are being encouraged to attend the first Fodder in Dairy workshop.

The Australian Fodder Industry Association (AFIA) is partnering with Murray Dairy to host the free event to be held Thursday, June 19.

AFIA Industry Development manager Caitlin Scholfield said the workshop would provide useful information and networking opportunities.

Participants will visit prominent dairy farms in north central Victoria — Riversdale and Jenharwil Baling.

‘‘While learning about the production of fodder, and its key role in producing milk, participants will get the chance to tour these two unique farms, learn from established business operators and hear how they have grown their businesses over time,’’ Mrs Perkins said.

The workshop will begin with morning tea at 9.30am at Riversdale farm near Rochester and conclude with lunch at 1pm at Jenharwil Baling, Elmore.

For more information or to register phone Caitlin Scholfield on 0417962991 or Geraldine Perkins on 0409577317.
