The People Capability for the Farm Sector project (Workforce planning and action for the Australian dairy industry) has developed a process for regional groups to better understand the current system of people development in their region so they are better able to influence and improve workforce planning. The project has identified that the Australian dairy industry needs to prioritise workforce planning and action to ensure it has the people it needs to underpin farm sector development. This will require: ongoing national and regional capacity; clear definition of the people needs of the industry; increased capacity of farm businesses.
