Students in this programme will gain the skills and knowledge to take responsibility for the day-to-day operational management of a pastoral or arable farming production system. Students will benefit by having a qualification with a Dairy Farming strand that recognises progression through the industry, as well as increased skills and knowledge acquisition to enable improved job performance.
The programme is for people who are experienced workers in the agriculture and dairy farming industries, and are looking to move into, or are at, a management level position in an agricultural production enterprise.
This programme includes on-farm assessment which is a key practical component and point of difference that compliments learning in the classroom.
Study includes 5-7 one day workshops per semester, as well as self-directed learning at home.
