The group has headed to the south island, home to some of the world’s leading dairy and processing facilities, and renowned for being ahead of the curve in regard to farming, processing techniques and research.
Interim chief executive of the Gardiner Dairy Foundation Dr Clive Noble described the participants as an exceptional group of young leaders, eager for individual and collective development.
“The calibre of applicants this year is a tribute to the level of quality young farmers we have in the Victorian dairy industry,” he said.
“Each applicant has shown determination and an interest to learn about farming in New Zealand and to work together for a stronger and more united dairy industry in Victoria.”
The program, now in its eighth year, integrates Australian farmers into a global dairy network.
“I can’t wait to get out there and see how the farming differs from what we do here in Australia and hopefully bring home some new ideas to put into practice,” Craig said before he left.
“The study tour will be a fantastic experience not only for learning about New Zealand pasture and farming but also to help us see how others handle transitional farming and the ownership of farms for next-generation farmers.”
