Research: This research scholarship allows me to focus on the feed supply of a dairy farm over 30 years with a changing climate. Utilising projected climate data and farm system modelling I will develop future feed scenarios while testing for a range of factors. A key part of the project is incorporating farmer input and drawing from a multidisciplinary team to gain insights.
Future plans: Once I have completed my Masters in 2022, my plan is to continue working with DairyNZ whilst developing my industry knowledge. I hope to inspire others who are passionate about sustainability and environmental awareness to get involved in agriculture. Long term, I want to have a career where I work alongside farmers to overcome climate change implications and ensure the future success of dairying in New Zealand.
