The 16th annual DairySA Innovation Day to be held at Mt Gambier, South Australia, on Thursday promises a relevant and motivating line-up of speakers who are set to offer insights into the latest advancements in people practices, innovative projects in plant and animal genetics and new approaches to managing agronomy and nutrition.

A key feature of this year's conference will be the inclusion of two panels comprised of dairy industry peers, each of whom have been selected for their unique dairy journey experiences.

According to DairySA's Bec Walmsley, the DairySA Innovation Day - this year around a focus of 'People, Pastures, Pathways' - is the result of a collaborative approach between DairySA and south east South Australian dairyfarmers.

"Like all agricultural industries, it's important that dairyfarmers keep up to date with the latest advances in their industry," Ms Walmsley said.

"Whether it's the latest innovations in breeding and pasture and their effect on profitability at the farm gate, managing people - our greatest asset - in our dairy businesses, or looking at opportunities for life beyond dairy, this conference will give delegates the opportunity to hear new ideas, observations and pathways for their dairy future," she said.

Two conference sessions will see panellists share their observations and practical tips on managing the challenges that come with today's dairy business and the pathways within and beyond the industry.

"We often get comments from farmers that one of the most valuable insights to be gained from this conference is hearing from their peers and their insights into the challenges they've faced - whether it be around people, building equity, changing farm ownership structures, or life after farming," Ms Walmsley said.

The relaxed conference dinner will this year be hosted by the passionate SA Young Dairy Network, and provides the space for delegates to strengthen their thoughts from the day's presentations through conversations with friends, farmers and the broader industry.

"We encourage everyone in the dairy industry to immerse themselves in this conference, be challenged, and draw inspiration from their peers," Ms Walmsley said.

The DairySA Innovation Day 2018 will be held on Thursday, June 7, from 9.30am at The Barn, Mt Gambier.D
