Upcoming webinars for dairy farmers on new Victorian EPA regulations
A new Victorian Environment Protection Act and regulations are coming into effect on 1 July 2021.
Dairy Australia, in partnership with the UDV and EPA Victoria, invites dairy farmers to a series of online webinars for dairy farm businesses on what the changes mean for their day-to-day business operations.
The webinars will be presented by Dr Meredith Gibbs of Gibbs Advisory.
The new Act and regulations represent a significant change in environmental management across Victoria, with a move from prosecution to prevention of environmental damage.
There will be six webinar times to choose from. Each webinar will be the same, however the ‘Large Herd’ webinar will also include information specific to farmers with larger herds who are managing larger volumes of wastes and other materials.
All sessions will include time for questions, and a recording of the presentation will be available afterwards, along with supporting documents to assist farmers with their understanding of the changes.
The remaining dates of the webinars are below:
Date: Monday August 9
Time: 12:00pm – 1:30pm
