Meat and Fibre
From the high country stations to the lowland intensive farming operations, pasture fed products earn us around $8 billion in exports every year – this is a significant industry.
NZ products are in demand because of their high quality and it’s innovation and technology that keep us competitive and leading the way. Genetics, management and distinctive feeding options give us a point of difference that demands higher premiums. The opportunities are growing in an industry that gives so much to the economy and offers so much more than a job.
Our role is to work with businesses across NZ's meat and fibre sectors to build a competent workforce that can meet market demands.
How we can help you grow
Aligned to industry standard roles, our sheep, beef and deer courses can help you build a team that has an in depth appreciation of animal husbandry and farming systems. Staff will grow depth of understanding and you can be confident that actions and decisions made on farm will meet business goals.
Ongoing education and training is crucial to keeping your workforce engaged and on board. Providing team members with ways to use their knowledge and progress into other roles on-plant is a key motivator in driving them to learn. Our learning pathway highlights the development opportunities available.
