Celebrating 10 years of educating up-and-coming leaders in agriculture - applications open for 2015 program
This year marks the 10th year of Rabobank’s Farm Managers Program, with more than 300 young farmers from across New Zealand and Australia graduating from the program since its inception in 2006.
Applications are now open for up-and-coming New Zealand farmers looking to undertake the 2015 Farm Managers Program.
Fifth generation bull beef producer, Rob Simpson from ‘Heaton Park’ in the lower North Island, who completed the program last year, says he was encouraged to attend the course by his father-in-law, who was one of the first graduates of Rabobank’s Executive Development Program.
“My father-in-law got a lot out of the program, and I thought it would be a good way to move forward in my own farming business,” he said.
Mr Simpson describes the course as the catalyst for changing his mindset, from one of working ‘in the business’ to working ‘on the business’.
