Eight regional dairy trainees have won a 10-day study tour to Australia.

The winning dairy trainees are recipients of the inaugural Dairy Trainee of the Year award created by Dairy Farmers of New Zealand, the dairy industry group of Federated Farmers of New Zealand (Inc).

“The standard of applications was very high, with all applicants showing significant achievements, and a strong dedication to their industry and local communities, said Ray Simpson, vice chairman of Dairy Farmers of New Zealand.

“While the high calibre of entrants made the selection process very difficult, it is encouraging to see that the dairy industry’s future is in good hands, “said Mr Simpson.

The regional winners are:

Duncan Bayne from Whangarei representing the Northern region,
Aaron Olesen from Otorohanga representing the West Waikato region,
Rachelle Seddon from Morrinsville representing the East Waikato region,
