Abstract

WHAT impact will future climate challenges and extreme weather events have on Tasmanian dairy businesses 20 years from now? This question was the focus of the Dairy Businesses for Future Climates national project, involving researchers from the Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture and the University of Melbourne. The project aimed to identify the skills and support that will be required under different climate futures to ensure a prosperous and sustainable dairy industry.
