The aim of Innovation Day is to put innovation and ideas in front of dairy farmers in order to inspire and encourage them to push the boundaries and look outside the square.
Western Dairy’s Innovation Day was formed in 2000 and each year is staged on a different WA dairy farm, aiming to showcase a range of farm and production systems.
Previous farm hosts have included the Negus Family at Tutunup, the Kitchen family at Boyanup, the Harvey Agricultural College, The Noakes family at Witchcliffe, the Rodwell family at Boyanup, the Dunnett family of Scott River, the Boley family of Scott River, the McGregors of Busselton, the Hayes family of Cookernup, Ross Woodhouse at Warner Glen, the Guira family at Keysbrook, the Hortin family at Torbay, the Merritt family in Elgin, the Lammie’s at Busselton and this year, the Giumelli’s at Benger.
Innovation Day traditionally attracts a large proportion of the state’s dairy farmers and service providers and delivers an interactive, informative and entertaining day out in a relaxed atmosphere. The event is free to attend as a delegate, and so we rely heavily on the sponsorship and exhibition from the commercial sector supporting the dairy industry, to fund this remarkable service to the dairy industry.
