Waikato animal nutrition specialist Nadine Huitema was one of two Kiwi representatives at the Woolworths Agricultural Business Scholarship Programme in Sydney last week.

Huitema, 27, advises on livestock for PGG Wrightson.

The scholarship, run by Countdown’s parent company Woolworths, gives practical and academic perspectives on the business of agriculture from key industry leaders. The industry supported course gives insights into all aspects of the food chain. 

The other Kiwi participant was sheep farmer Grant McNaughton.

Huitema and McNaughton were given the chance to speak and interact with experienced industry representatives.

Huitema is an animal nutrition technical specialist - advising on dairy cows, dairy goats, beef and lamb for PGG Wrightson. Her particular interest is in pasture, crops and other types of feeds.
