The wellbeing and safety of farmers and their families in the GMID is important to the Connections Project.
Living in rural areas presents unique challenges and opportunities. Ongoing dry conditions and external influences, such as commodity prices and regulatory requirements, can all add to the pressure on farm businesses.
Murray Dairy’s Tactics for Tight Times initiative is designed to assist you to find information and help that is relevant to you, when you need it. It can also equip you with tactics to reduce the pressure on your farm and your family.
This initiative and the supplementary resources listed below may be useful.
