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.
Our 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.
Whether your career's just kicking off helping out with day-to-day tasks, or you're a manager overseeing all aspects of production, stock, and staff management. Our qualifications will help set you up in a great career.
