The WA Government is backing the Western Australian dairy industry, providing $200,000 to assist the industry to strengthen and grow.
WA Agriculture and Food Minister Alannah MacTiernan announced the new funding to support local research and development over the next two years.
The investment will enable Western Dairy, industry’s independent research and development arm, to build on its achievements since its inception three years ago.
The organisation has successfully established the WA RD&E (research, development and extension) Hub to focus on local production challenges and opportunities, guided by industry.
The State Government’s contribution will enable Western Dairy to attract co-investment from industry partners to add value to projects that increase profitability and build a long-term sustainable industry.
