About the Young Dairy Network
The aim of the Subtropical Dairy YDN is to provide encouragement, support and opportunities for young farmers and professionals to develop the technical knowledge and skills they require to make informed decisions in their business; build the communication and leadership skills they require to fulfil key roles in the dairy industry and community; and communicate and build relationships with key industry, agribusiness and government contacts that can assist them to develop their businesses.
To create a supportive network environment where young dairy farmers and professionals can act autonomously, share challenges and successes, inspire one another to grow and develop their businesses and boost morale through challenging periods.
