Department on show

Display at show

Staff from the GSDC joined other Great Southern Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD) officers in a combined display at the Albany Agricultural Show in November. The joint effort was the first time the Albany show has hosted the three strands of the new department in a single display since DPIRD was created two years ago from the former departments of Regional Development, Agriculture and Food, and Fisheries.

Through interactive displays and face-to-face service, show patrons learned about biosecurity, careers in primary industry, shark deterrent rebates and up-to-date rules for recreational fishers. Soil productivity and animal diseases drew the attention of primary producers.

GSDC staff focused on available funding opportunities and highlighted the State Government’s support for regional development projects, including Great Southern Regional Economic Development grants.
