New future fund for agriculture students
THE Australian Fodder Industry Association (AFIA), together with Lallemand Animal Nutrition, has announced a new fund to help support the next generation of fodder industry producers.
To be known as the Lallemand Gen Ag Future Fund, the program was launched at the recent 2017 National Fodder Conference.
The Lallemand Gen Ag Future Fund will be awarded to an outstanding Gen Ag individual who is deemed able to make a demonstrable long-term contribution to the Australian fodder industry and more broadly, Australian agriculture.
The 2018 fund offers a Gen Ag member $3000 to assist with further education or costs to undertake a specific project that will benefit the industry.
“The Lallemand Gen Ag Future Fund was initiated to recognise a new generation of agriculture students who are excelling in their chosen field,” Lallemand Animal Nutrition country manager, Alex Turney, said.
“Lallemand supports the advancement of agriculture’s current and future generations.”
Applications for the first round of the program will open at the beginning of 2018, and individuals will be assessed based on their essay, resume and career vision.
More information will be released closer to the date.
