The NZDFA in association with DINZ, want to give some keen agriculture students an up close look at our industry by taking them on a whirlwind tour of the deer farming industry. Over the course of a week 08 - 12 August 2022 the students will spend time with deer farmers, processing companies and also attend the NZDFA Next Generation 2022 conference in the Central North Island (Turangi & Ohakune). The programme will raise the profile of opportunities in the deer farming industry. DINZ. NZDFA will cover costs for all meals, travel and accommodation for the week.
Applications are now open and close 5pm Friday 29 July 2022.
Students studying toward a diploma or certificate in agriculture or farm management can apply along with those who have attended deer husbandry ITO courses. See website links for more details and how to apply >>
