Next generation ensures bright future for agriculture

The 2014 National Merino Challenge is attracting some of the highest quality agriculture students.

The 2014 National Merino Challenge – an initiative of Australian Wool Innovation – is attracting some of the highest quality agriculture students from schools, TAFEs, agriculture colleges and universities across every wool growing region of Australia.

The Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria is the host venue provider for the 2014 National Merino Challenge at the Melbourne Royal Agricultural Showgrounds.

The National Merino Challenge will be staged over two days on 24-25 May. Based on the enthusiasm demonstrated by teachers attending a recent National Merino Challenge ‘Train the Trainer’ event in Melbourne, competition will be strong and students primed for the challenge.

The Train the Trainer event offered teachers from around Australia dynamic new resources and new knowledge to take back to the students.
