ON FARM 57 AWI GROWER NETWORKS PRODUCERS LEARNING FROM PRODUCERS • AWI grower networks are present in each wool-growing state. • They aim to increase the long-term productivity and profitability of producers. • All woolgrowers are encouraged to get involved. AWI-supported extension networks provide opportunities for producers to get involved in practical programs that focus on making positive changes to on-farm production and management practices. Be involved as little or as much as you like: sign up for newsletters about local issues, attend local field days and workshops. The networks are fundamental to: • the spread of new ideas • continuing education • the adoption of best practice • giving AWI a direct link to what is happening on-ground. Ongoing strong partnerships with state departments of agriculture, private providers and woolgrowers help ensure the grower networks continue to generate increased participation and reported benefits by woolgrowers. To learn more about the networks and how to get involved, refer to the website of your state network, or contact the network coordinator below.
