POW celebrates the strong, passionate and successful women in dairy.

Women gathered for a special night at International Dairy Week to celebrate the Power of Women in Dairy.

The evening attracted women from across the industry.

The Bette Hall Power of Women in Dairy Award for Excellence winner was Pam Malcolm, Stewarton, Vic.

Mrs Malcolm, Paringa Holsteins, is a master breeder.

The night also included guest speaker and former dairyfarmer Di Schubert.

First established in 2016, POW is a forum for women in dairy to gather, network, be inspired and learn new skills and knowledge to assist them in their everyday lives.

POW celebrates the strong, passionate and successful women in dairy as well as rewarding excellence and supporting younger women making their way within the industry.

In 2017 POW awarded its first scholarship to Clare Modra from Gunbower, Victoria, who will represent POW at World Dairy Expo in October 2018.
