We Are Dairy Award


Celebrating the outstanding actions our dairy farmers take to protect the land and the welfare of their animals


The #WeAreDairy Award is your opportunity as a dairy farm owner, manager, employee or dairy farm group to share the innovative ways that you are improving the sustainability of your farm and ensuring the welfare of your animals with the wider farming community and beyond.


Collectively, the Dairy Farming sector has made significant progress in reducing the impact we all have on the environment and improving the welfare of our animals. We believe it is now the time to promote the incredible advancements that you, the dairy community, are making on a daily basis and inspire others to follow in your footsteps. 


$10,000 Grand Prize 


Your examples of sustainable and welfare improvements will give you the chance to win our grand prize of $10,000 and in the process, you will be helping to promote the dairy sector and change perceptions of the industry. Our judging panel will be looking at a number of factors including; innovative thinking, the ease of implementation, the motivation for implementation and the relative impact of the change. It is our aim to promote all entries to further showcase the exceptional efforts of the dairy community in these areas.
