Membership to the Murray Dairy Young Dairy Network has already paid off for one member.
Ann Wood of Molyullah, near Benalla, won a trip to the Gold Coast as part of the networks’s online membership campaign.
Born and raised on dairy farms, the 24-year-old did a school-based traineeship and a Diploma of Agriculture with the National Centre for Dairy Education Australia.
‘‘This will be my first holiday in almost 20 years and I am looking forward to escaping the below zero frosty starts this coming winter,’’ Ms Wood said.
‘‘A few friends have heard about me winning this holiday, and they have put their hands up to come with me.
‘‘Although I think my partner would really enjoy a couple of days away, too.’’
Murray Dairy chief executive Leanne Mulcahy said since the network’s December launch event, registrations had been strong.
‘‘We have been inundated with new members and it’s great to see so many people wanting to get involved with the network,’’ Ms Mulcahy.
She also welcomed employers encouraging staff to get involved with the network.
The Murray Dairy Young Dairy Network has been established to meet the needs of the younger dairy farmers, employees and service providers within the Murray Dairy region.
Ms Mulchay said helping young dairy farmers recognise the opportunities and resources within the dairy industry would ensure profitable businesses and capability for the industry’s future.
