An important way of attracting people to the agricultural sector is through informing people of all the ages of the various career options in agribusiness, starting with kids.
Here are a few of the programs doing just that:
A web portal for teachers run by Primary Industries Foundation Australia, which provides access to a range of educational resources.
Dairy Australia’s program is providing free materials to students, educating them about the industry and the health and nutrition benefits of dairy foods as part of a balanced diet.
This is a website providing teachers and students with resources about wool production, processing, marketing and fashion aspects of Australia’s natural fibre.
It’s an “ag-ucational” day at the Royal Queensland Show, Ekka, where farmers teach students about food production. It’s aimed at bringing the country to the city to teach primary school students that food comes from farms, not the supermarket shelf.
