Farm visits a highlight of agriculture degree

Field trips to farms have been a highlight of Jun Meng Cheng’s agricultural studies in New Zealand.

Jun Meng, from Malaysia, chose to study for a Bachelor of Agriculture in New Zealand because of the important role agriculture plays in the country’s economy. New Zealand is a world leader in agribusiness innovation, and Jun was keen to learn more about its production methods.

Lincoln’s Bachelor of Agriculture Degree involves 28 weeks of practical work. Jun Meng spent a summer working on a 200 hectare dairy farm with 600 milking cows, and hoped to find work in a herbage seed company for the following summer.

“We’ve had lots of field trip around the South Island to learn about different types of farm management,” he says.

The lecturers are very helpful, and the environment here is good for our studies as there are farms all around the school.

Jun Meng enjoys New Zealand’s temperate climate, friendly people and safe, natural environment.

He wants to be a farmer after completing his degree, and hopes to stay in New Zealand to work for a year or two before returning home to Malaysia.
