Pasture key to reducing costs
DAIRY farmers are urged to grow as much pasture as possible while keeping costs
under control, this winter.
The Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources recommends farmers use nitrogen
and gibberellic acid to increase growth rates.
When combined with good grazing management, this can increase available pasture to cows, however this
comes at a cost that needs to be calculated.
If farmers have not sprayed broad leaf weeds, the department suggests doing so at the first opportunity to have
denser, better producing pasture for the rest of the year.
Farmers should consider aiming for higher covers of pasture if they will have an increasing feed demand from
calving cows through August and into September.
More cover now will give farmers more management options if wet conditions occur.
YARRAM Secondary College was one
of five Gippsland schools that participat-
ed in the Cows Create Careers manufac-
turing program this term.
Held at the Leongatha RSL recently around 60
students came together as a conclusion to the pro-
gram, which introduces food and technology stu-
dents to dairy manufacturing.
Warragul’s Marist Sion Regional College claimed
the program’s overall school prize and also won the
best team project.
The Cows Create Careers manufacturing is a
Dairy Australia program, which involves students
visiting dairying manufacturing sites.
Teams from each school work together to com-
plete dairy manufacturing assessment tasks and dairy
industry advocates visit the school to support and en-
courage the students throughout the program.
Cows Create Careers manufacturing program
manager Mani Iyer said the program is an innova-
tive channel to build awareness of dairy career path-
“The program provides a platform to introduce
secondary students to the Australian dairy industry,
dairy processes and products,” he said.
“Since its pilot in 2010 the program has grown
significantly and has gained strong support from
dairy manufacturing companies.”
The Cows Create Careers program is funded and
managed by Dairy Australia and is conducted by
Jaydee Events Pty Ltd.
Well done: Yarram Secondary College stu-
dent Emily Finn represented her team at the
Cows Create Careers presentation day held
in Leongatha recently.

THE State Government is supporting
Victoria’s regional small businesses im-
pacted by the recent changes in global
and local milk prices with a range of
specialist business support services to
run across the state over the next two
Minister for Small Business, Innovation and
Trade Philip Dalidakis said there are a large number
of Victorian small businesses that are heavily reliant
on the dairy industry for their income.
He said these businesses have been significantly
worse off since the global fall in milk prices and de-
cisions by some processors to cut the prices paid to
“Small businesses are the lifeblood of our rural
and regional economies and we are ensuring that
those businesses in Victoria’s dairy communities are
getting the right support when they need it most,”
Quotes attributable to the Minister for Agricul-
ture Jaala Pulford said the dairy farming commu-
nity is doing it tough but it is important that we
support businesses beyond the farm gate as well.
“We know that this is a tough time for all Victori-
ans affected by the dairy crisis and that’s why we’re
delivering comprehensive support to the whole com-
munity,” she said.
Small businesses in Victoria’s dairy regions – in-
cluding South West Victoria, Northern Victoria and
Gippsland – will be able to access expert mentoring
and advice from experienced industry specialists to
help them make informed business decisions during
this financially stressful period.
The series of workshops will begin this week and
will be run by Small Business Victoria in partnership
with local councils to provide support to some the
130,000 regional small businesses facing hardship
in the agricultural and retail sectors.
Victorian small businesses are vital for the econ-
omy generating more than 30 per cent of the state’s
goods and services and providing almost 50 per cent
of private sector jobs.
With 28 per cent of small businesses located in
regional Victoria, they are the backbone of many lo-
This small business support is an addition to a
range of other initiatives delivered by the Govern-
ment to date to help Victoria’s dairy farmers.
This includes a $11.4 million support package
provided in partnership with Victoria’s dairy industry,
as well as extending the Government’s Back to Work
scheme to make members of a dairy farm household
an eligible category of employee.

“For this process to progress any further, another
study will need to be done at the expense of ratepayers.”
Mr Stainer said areas on the outskirts of the shire
are not given the same priority when it comes to the
allocation of resources.
“We hope this changes after October 22, but
there is a lot of work for a new council to catch up
on,” he said.
Mr Hobson said the issue of inappropriately
zoned land is not restricted to Port Albert.
“It is a shire wide issue, people all over Welling-
ton should be concerned about this. People are prob-
ably affected without even knowing it,” he said.
“It stifles growth and the development of life-
Mr Hobson said the council unanimously
pushed for more precincts to be opened, after the

ment to creating new lifestyle opportunities in Port
Ultimately, Mr Stainer said he is disappointed
the council commissioned two reports doomed to
“Neither report did any of the statutory work it
was meant to do. The reports didn’t meet their objec-
tives,” he said.
“They didn’t even identify rural living zone
properties that were incorrectly zoned, let alone al-
low for new ones.
“This is not about having land for sale, it is about
rectifying the inappropriate zoning. That is what we
