Applications for AgITO's North Island Farming to Succeed programme sponsored by FIL New Zealand are now open. Lower order share- milker, Daniel Noakes, attended this year's Farming to Succeed course and he is still buzzing about the experi- ence. It was awesome,'' Dan says. We talked about so many ideas and ways to get ahead.'' The course appealed to Dan because he saw it as an opportunity to further his career in the dairy industry. The course content and what I might learn looked interesting, I felt it could be really useful at this point in my career.'' Farming to Succeed runs once yearly over five days, during which participants go through a structured series of workshops, farm visits and discussion groups. Participants work with course facilitator Grant Taylor and other leading agribusiness practi- tioners to explore the key ingredients required for the achievement of per- sonal and business suc- cess. Only 25 people are accepted to each course. Topics covered include career development, staged capital growth and asset management, goal setting and motiv- ation, successful busi- ness partnerships, financial development, time management and managing stress. There are no course fees for Farming to Suc- ceed thanks to FIL who have sponsored Farming to Succeed and its prede- cessor Bound to Succeed for the last eight years. Dan is in his fourth season sharemilking around 600 cows near Whangarei. He has two full time staff members and one part timer work- ing for him. He is an advocate of learning new skills and knowledge and is cur- rently completing his National Certificate in Agriculture (Production Management) (Level 4) through AgITO. He relished the oppor- tunity to visit some of Waikato's top perfor- ming farms in the dairy, poultry, goat and sheep and beef industries dur- ing Farming to Succeed. It was great to go onto top North Island farms and take a look at busi- ness prospects outside of the dairy industry,'' he says. Plus I gained inspiration from visiting a dairy farm that is pro- ducing two and half thousand milk solids a hectare. Goal setting was a huge part of the course. Getting that big goal down on paper and look- ing at the smaller baby steps to achieve it was great.'' Dan is now confident about taking on his own ultimate goal -- farm ownership. He wants to be 50:50 sharemilking in two years and from there eventually move into farm ownership. I've definitely mapped out the steps to get there,'' he says. He thinks the skills and experience brought to the course by facili- tator Grant Taylor are part of what makes the course so fantastic. Grant is awesome, his passion and enthusiasm for the industry and his willingness to share his skills and knowledge with the next generation of farmers is invaluable. Farming to Succeed was really well organised and generously spon- sored by FIL. It was well worth it and I appreciate the time that was put into getting the course content together.'' It's a resounding yes when Dan is asked if he'd recommend the course to others. Definitely, I tell as many people as I can,'' he says. Put together the best CV possible so that you're at the front of the line when applying. It's really beneficial for any- one who wants a top level, successful career in farming.'' Farming to Succeed applications are open to eligible Level 3 or above AgITO trainees from any farming sector until January 20, 2012. The North Island course will run from March 26 to 30, 2012. You can apply online and find out further details at www.farmingto succeed.co.nz or by contacting AgITO on 0800 691 111.
