YFC 2010: Travel scholarship unveiled

An exciting new travel scholarship offering a young British farmer a chance to work in New Zealand has been unveiled at the Young Farmers agm in Torquay.

The first YFC scholar will travel abroad later this year and spend up to a month gaining hands-on experience of sheep farms, plus have the opportunity to travel in the ‘land of the white cloud’.

The scholarship, provided by Novartis Animal Health, was dubbed by NFYFC operations manager James Eckley as “an amazing opportunity to travel to the heart of the world’s sheep industry and bring back practical know-how to improve production here”.
