Real Farmers Managing Climate Risk
Manage episode 345748019 series 2932023
This month, Zita Ritchie interviews Paula Gray. Paula is a farmer form Rolland’s Plains on the Mid North Coast of NSW who farms with her husband Mick. The Gray’s have been the NSW case study farm for a project called Dairy Businesses for Future Climates which enables farmers to understand the likely impacts of climate on their farm and help them prepare to better manage the risks or changes.
It is the first time this project has been run in NSW with previous work having been done in dairying regions in Victoria, South Aust and Tasmania.
This project has been funded through the large R,D&E program DairyUP and Dairy Australia and facilitated by the NSW DPI.
