Great South West Dairy Awards 2012
The awards keep growing and in 2011 there were record nominations, record sponsorship support, and record attendance at the Gala Awards Night.
The winners, who shared a prize pool of more than $15,000, were announced at Glenormiston College on April 7 and were recognised for their outstanding achievements as dairy employers, employees, natural resource managers, young farm leaders, share farmers and dairy farm photographers.
The Awards set out to recognise and reward the skill, dedication, leadership, ingenuity and environmental responsibility of our farming community in south west Victoria.
Between Geelong and the South Australian border dairy produces nearly 25% of Australia’s milk and the awards remind the general community of the importance of dairy (a $4.6Bn industry) to south west Victoria.
Nominations are now open for 2012 in the following categories:
Employer of the Year
Employee of the Year
Share Farmer of the Year
Young Farm Leader of the Year
Natural Resource and Sustainability Manager of the Year
Farm Photo of the Year
