Great South West Dairy Awards

WestVic Dairy’s prestigious Great South West Dairy Awards are hosted every second year to recognise and celebrate the achievements, dedication and hard work of those in the dairy industry in South-west Victoria. 

Each awards year the winners are announced at an Awards Gala Evening.

With a rich legacy of over 15 years, this setting allows for a grand celebration, acknowledging and honouring the contributions of dairy industry participants who have excelled in the region.

To be considered for an award candidates must first be nominated. Completed applications then undergo a rigorous judging process.
