Responsible Dairying is a way of conducting a farm business where actions and results demonstrate responsibility and sustainability. The management and performance of people, farming system, finances, animal care and ecosystem are all important pillars of Responsible Dairying.
This Award recognises dairy farmers who are demonstrating leadership in their approach to Responsible Dairying, have proven results and are respected by their farming peers and their community. They are future-focused while also being proactive with addressing the opportunities and challenges of today.
Entry for this merit award is by nomination only.
