EVERY dairy farmer knows how im-
portant the support of friends, family
and neighbours has been during the past
With this in mind, GippsDairy chair Graeme
Nicoll is hoping the dairy community gets be-
hind the Movember challenge as a chance to give
something back to the community by supporting
initiatives to reduce the rate of male suicide.
“It’s about raising money and raising aware-
ness around men’s health issues and starting a
conversation on a topic that was previously out-
of-bounds for a lot of blokes,” he said.
Fellow GippsDairy directors Grant Williams
from Hallora and Brad Missen from Denison are
already sprouting lip whiskers, while each male

Mo for a cause: he might look dastardly, but GippsDairy chair Graeme Nicoll only has good
intentions this Movember.
Mo excuse not to get involved
member of the GippsDairy staff has also commit-
ted to leave his mo un-mowed for a month.
“Movember isn’t just for blokes. If growing a
mo isn’t an option for you, you can still sign up
for Movember and take the challenge to get more
active for the month,” Graeme said.
“I’d like to invite anyone connected with the
dairy industry to join us by growing a mo, donat-
ing to The Milk Mustaches team or participating
in one of the other activities around Movember.”
