AgTech for all ages and applications
The next generation of young agricultural students were able to experience the many aspects of farm management and agriculture in a recent field day held in conjunction with Australian Wool Innovation (AWI) and the Orange Anglican Grammar School (OAGS).
There was a strong focus on the growing areas of agriculture such as technology and regenerative ag.
“Many of the students who attended were keen to know more about how to get a start or look for various careers outside of the farm gate” explained Greg Sawyer, district wool manager, Elders Orange, who introduced students to wool handling and classification.
“This included drone pilot, wool-classer, contract muster, Elders livestock and wool specialist and precision agricultural specialist as well as farm database managers.”
Over 100 students from six schools as far away as Forbes and Bathurst attended what is hoped to be the first of many such field days.
“The day was a resounding success and the local Elders branch of Molong is happy to support these events to promote the skills and increase the knowledge of all the students attending” said Mr Sawyer.
