Victorian Dairy Farmers: simple ways to save energy

This set of videos, produced by WestVic Dairy, was partly funded by Sustainability Victoria.

The videos provide tips and advice for dairy farmers on how to reduce their energy. The main focus is on improvements that are relatively low cost, have short payback periods and can be implemented in most dairies.
