Rivalea dinners at Wodonga and Barooga

Rivalea Australia is best known for producing and processing fresh pork in southern NSW and Victoria but it also supports local dairy farmers by supplying feed for their milking cows. In late June Rivalea invited Sam and Jenny Bailey to speak at its annual farmer insight events - dinners on June 26 at Huon Hill, Wodonga, and on June 27, at Cobram Barooga Golf Club, Barooga. Sam said it was a great chance to catch up with local producers and hear how they are coping with the many challenges facing the industry. "While some are leaving the industry, there are still young, enthusiastic producers hanging in there despite low prices, drought and high feed costs. I hope my story helps inspire them to keep going because they provide a valuable fresh commodity for our supermarket shelves and we need them."
