Funding available under the DairyCare program aims to assist dairy farmers to reduce nutrient loss from dairy sheds and improve productivity by reusing nutrients in effluent on the farm.
GeoCatch is funding at least ten dairies in the Geographe Catchment to develop a dairy effluent management plan and provide funding incentives to upgrade ten effluent management systems. Seven farmers have been selected in Round 1 and at least three further farms will receive funding through Round 2.
Farmers who submitted an EOI in Round 1 do not need to reapply and will be contacted by GeoCatch to confirm they still would like to be considered for funding.
The DairyCare Project forms part of the Revitalising Geographe Waterways Program, a four year program supported by Royalties for Regions to improve water quality, waterway health and management of Geographe waterways.
