Welcome to the Saputo Dairy Expo 2019

Meet and Greet with our Industry
The Strzelecki Lions Club is proud to host the 2019 Saputo Dairy Expo in Korumburra on Wednesday 11th and Thursday 12th of September. 

South Gippsland is home to many exceptional dairy farm enterprises that form a significant part of the rural community. The Saputo Dairy Expo provides an opportunity for this community to see the latest in dairy innovation and technology - in an easy ‘one stop shop' - while offering a host of entertainment for the whole family.

The Lions Club is delighted to have Saputo Dairy Australia as this year's Major Sponsor and Reid Stockfeeds as this year's Platinum Sponsor. 

Cliff Wallace, Chairman of the Saputo Dairy Expo and a Strzelecki Lions Club member, said that since the year 2000, the Lions Club has organised the popular community-based expo that has now grown into a major regional event and this year promises to be better than ever.
 
"It's really positive to have reputable companies like Saputo Dairy Australia and Reid Stockfeeds support the Expo.
We are looking forward to this years' partnerships and hopefully continuing our relationships into the future." Cliff said.

 
"The public who come through the gates are around 90 percent farmers.
It's a place where exhibitors and farmers can deal with each other directly.
Some people also come along for a day out or to meet friends,
others come along specifically to attend something on our program." Cliff said. 

 
"It's rewarding to see the results from the past 20 years, and this year is no exception.
The Saputo Dairy Expo continues to get better and better - exhibitors and the public keep coming back,
which shows it's a success."

Panel members - dairy farmers James Dillon, Luke Zuidema and Daryl Hoey, local and respected Real Estate Agent Peter Bellingham, Professor Rob Faggian and local Rabobank Rural Manager Tracy Hollingworth – will discuss what farming was like in the north, what Gippsland has to offer in the short and longer term and what it means to our region, land prices and dairy farming in general.

Hungry?

This year marks the 22nd anniversary of the Strzelecki Lions Club. Cliff said that the Club's activities, including the Saputo Dairy Expo, could not happen without the valuable dedication and support from the community, companies, and volunteers. 

The Saputo Dairy Expo is supported by Gold Sponsors: Burra Foods, GippsDairy, Commonwealth Bank, Easy Dairy Automation Systems, Start Solar, SRH Milk Haulage, Dairy News Australia, Peter Stoitse Transport, Ross Chapman Cartage & Earthmoving Contractors, Lely Center Gippsland, Tow and Farm, South Gippsland Shire Council and Rabobank.
 
"The Lions Club Committee and the Expo volunteers put in so much effort.
It's a pleasant and enjoyable job when you're working with a great team of people." Cliff said.

 
"The money raised by Strzelecki Lions Club activities, goes back to benefit the community.
Over the years, we've raised $570,000."

 
"We've distributed it in many different ways: to schools, to send kids to camps, to fund play equipment,
and to support other Lions health and wellbeing initiatives - we cover an enormous range.
If we think it's beneficial to the community, we try to help."
