Do you know a young person seeking an incredible opportunity to further their career in the dairy sector?

Applications are being sought from people keen to be part of the five-strong New Zealand team that will compete at the European Young Breeders School in Belgium in September.

Young men and women representing all dairy breeds are encouraged to apply.

The EYBS is the international reference point for training and show preparation, with almost 200 competitors from around the world expected to take part.

Leadership and personal development are at the heart of New Zealand’s EYBS programme.

“Attending EYBS will enable participants to further develop their leadership skills and forge friendships that will last a lifetime,” said Rachel Stewart, who will jointly lead the team.

“This trip will play a pivotal role in developing and broadening the horizons of emerging leaders in New Zealand’s dairy industry.”

The trip is open to New Zealand residents aged 18 to 25 years, as at 31st July 2020.

Estimated travel dates will be 28th August – 9th September 2020.

The trip is backed by Holstein Friesian NZ and Jersey NZ and will be fully funded by sponsors. It will not proceed if sponsorship targets are not met.

Applications close 31 March 2020.
