Last Chance For Dairy Trainees

Dairy trainees have less than a week to get their applications in for the first Dairy Trainee of Year competition.

The award is open to all trainees who have completed their National Certificate in Agriculture – Level 4 (including the specific dairy strand) or an equivalent course.

To be eligible to enter, the trainee must have completed the course requirements by 31 December 2005.

Entries are split into eight regions with a winner chosen from each region.

The eight winners receive an all expenses paid 8-10 day study tour to Australia in May 2006.

They will also be awarded the title of regional Dairy Trainee of the Year and be presented their award at an award ceremony.

Applications for the competition must be in by Monday 20 February 2006.

For more information and an application form visit www.fedfarm.org.nz.

The Dairy Trainee of the Year competition is proudly supported by Federated Farmers of New Zealand (Inc) and Dairy InSight.
