Program Description:
 
International Livestock 2019
 
 
This two week program will provide Agricultural Science, Animal Science and Veterinary Medicine students the opportunity to experience livestock management and farming methods in Northern Territory, Indonesia and Cambodia from September 21st - October 5th, 2019.
 
Travelling to Darwin, Jakarta, Lampung, Bogor, and Siem Reap, the tour will focus on production systems for Australian cattle in Indonesia as well as local production systems including small-holder agriculture and also sheep, goats, rice and horticulture. The tour also covers the role of Australian cattle play in poverty alleviation in nearby Asia. The aim is to provide knowledge of production systems in developing countries, to demonstrate the value of live export and to inspire and equip students to travel and potentially work in these countries during their career.  

Students participating in this program will develop cultural awareness, and see in a real-world context the fact that agriculture is the interaction between culture, macro and micro-economics, politics, climate and topography, in addition to production aspects of supplying food to a global population.

Passionate people from our livestock industry are encouraged to join us.

Interested students are encouraged to watch the video accessed here for a glimpse of what to expect on this study tour.
