With agriculture, particularly dairy farming, being the largest industry in the Waikato, there are plenty of opportunities to create an exciting career in food production. At Wintec, we work with the Primary ITO and Dairy Training Ltd and Dairy NZ to deliver programmes to meet the needs of the agricultural sector.

The Wintec agriculture and agribusiness programmes may be suitable for students who are farm owners or managers or are looking to get started in dairy, sheep, beef or horticultural agribusiness.‚Äč

Students can focus their learning in a variety of areas, including day-to-day management of pastures, feed budgeting, mating, milk harvesting, and benchmarking. Students can grow their skills in agribusiness areas such as staff, financial and environmental management.
