Claire says that while she did not grow up on a farm, this did not stop her passion and interest in a dairy sector career. “Studying Agriculture at Pukekohe High School increased my interest in a career in agriculture. It gave me the motivation to attend Taratahi Agricultural Training centre to further develop practical skills and knowledge.”
After completing the Level 4 Certificate in Agriculture, Claire started a fulltime career in dairying. She worked two seasons on-farm putting her knowledge and skills into practice and continued to develop teamwork skills.
