“The webinars offered by Dairy Australia and GOTAFE National Centre for Dairy Education have given me the opportunity to keep my skills updated and fine tuned in the comfort of my own home or cheese room. Usually I am working away making cheese while conversing with cheese and dairy experts from all over the world. Cheese knowledge is endless!”
