Are you a Dairy Farmer or working in the dairy industry?
Have you been thinking about working off the farm to help supplement your farm business income?
Have you heard of the Rural Skills Connect Program?
The Rural Skills Connect Program is funded by the Victorian Government and is aimed at providing flexible employment and training guidance for dairy farmers, their family members or employees and affected dairy farm service providers to support them as the dairy industry recovers.
For more information about the Rural Skills Connect Program and/or a confidential chat, please contact Jo Turner, Program Manager in the Murray Dairy region in Northern Victoria (Swan Hill to Corryong) on 0472 863 050 or mailto:email@example.com or visit http://www.rdv.vic.gov.au/regional-projects/dairy-industry-support for contact details of the Program Manager for your region.
