Joshua Fittler won a FFN Member Bursary to attend the Australian Sheep and Wool Show in Bendigo, Victoria. The Armidale based ag-trepreneur held a stall for his startup Resurrect Refugia.
“We sell drench susceptible internal parasites of sheep for the elimination of drench resistance. The Australian Sheep and Wool Show is the largest event of its kind in the world. The best of the best sheep breeders come together to compete in showing of their sheep as well as a number of other exhibitors showcasing the latest in fashion, science, technology, cuisine and shearing.”
Sally Downie of Trundle in NSW has also been awarded a FFN Member Bursary, and will use it to assist in the costs of attending the Royal Agriculture Society of the Commonwealth Understanding and Assistance Mission, being held in the Caribbean Islands later this year. 10 delegates are selected for the trip to represent the RASC and promote agricultural shows, as well as participate in extension work. “I hope to gain an amazing experience from which I’ll develop skills, insight and networks to apply to my studies and career in agriculture. I want to share my experience and what I learn with other young people to encourage them to be involved in agriculture.”
