Whether you want to help improve farm performance or maintain a steady platform for the future, knowledge is key in the dairy industry.
New Zealand dairy farmers need to find smart ways to stay ahead of the herd. Just ask Tony and Shona Pedersen of Raglan.
They both gained full diplomas in Agribusiness Management from Primary ITO. The skills they acquired have helped keep their business on track, even through the lean seasons. Now they are empowering the next generation by encouraging their staff to study and train with us.
"Farm businesses have to cut costs in a downturn, but it takes training and knowledge to make the right cost cutting decisions. Arguably training is the single most valuable investment one can make. Good management allows you to make good decisions and good investments in other areas. Skilled people make smarter decisions."
