Murray dairy farmers will focus on farm business planning at seasonal update events later this month.
The sessions are run by Murray Dairy and aim to help the local dairy industry with planning for the next season off the back of a "challenging year".
A Murray Dairy spokeswoman said speakers will provide expert analysis of milk pricing trends, fodder market indicators and climate forecasts.
"Speakers include Kate Bourke of Think Agri, in collaboration with Agriculture Victoria's Dale Grey and NSW DPI's Peter Havrlant," she said.
"Representatives from Goulburn Murray Water and Murray Irrigation will provide an update on seasonal water determinations.

"Local consultants, Daryl Poole (RMCG), Tom Farran (Farmanco), Phil Shannon (Shannon Consulting) and Brian Crockart (CRC Agri) will facilitate discussion, delving into options for different dairy businesses under scenarios including dry conditions, high water prices and a tight feed market."
The discussion will focus on improving margins, from managing the herd to managing fodder supplies.
"The events will also explore ways for dairy farmers to optimise the use of water over spring and summer, expanding on VFF's water information sessions this week," the spokeswoman said.
"This will assist in decision making about when and how to use water, boosting production in spring and securing water to meet business needs."
The Wodonga and Finley sessions are on Wednesday, July 24.
