Farming Futures

The PHA team recently teamed up with Alison and Patrick from Pepe’s Ducks to participate in UNE’s Farming Futures. This event is run by students for students and really delivers the message that Australian agriculture is an exciting career opportunity. Farming Futures is a celebration of careers in agriculture.

The Farming Futures concept is helping address some of the significant issues facing the agricultural sector such as: low numbers of agricultural graduates, uncertainty about career paths in the sector and the low percentage of the agricultural workforce with a tertiary education.

Internships play a crucial role in attracting young people to the poultry industry by providing practical experience, industry exposure, networking opportunities, skill development, career exploration, and adaptation to industry changes. They bridge the gap between academic knowledge and real-world application, helping individuals develop the necessary understanding and insight into the poultry industry.
