HW Greenham & Sons are pleased to announce the Greenham GOTAFE Dairy Scholarship is open for 2018. Remember, it’s open to immediate family members, sharefarmers, employees or interns of anyone who has sold cattle to H.W.

The scholarship, now in its eighteenth year, provides an opportunity for enthusiastic students between 17-45 years to apply for the substantial prize to help them undertake further education related to any sector of the dairy and related industries.

Executive chairman, Peter Greenham, said that partnership reflects the company’s long-standing commitment to education, innovation and the Australian dairy industry.

“It’s very important that younger people see a future for themselves in the industry. We have built our business on servicing the dairy sector and we want to see it prosper to help build strong regional communities and local economies,” Mr Greenham said.

Past winners of the scholarship have pursued their interests in large herd veterinary issues, soil and pasture management, business and environmental management, animal sciences, dairy technology and even local medical practice.
