Research: I have been awarded master’s Scholarship co funded by DairyNZ and NIWA to undertake a Master’s of Science (Research) in Environmental Science at Waikato University in 2021. The proposed course of research is to analyse key pasture and animal data generated with the Irrigation Insight project in association with DairyNZ and NIWA. This work will contribute to outcomes of more efficient irrigation that continues to deliver high pasture harvest.
Future plans: On completion of my studies I would like to explore career opportunities in either agriculture research or farm advisory.
