I did a Bachelor of AgriCommerce because food production is the backbone of the New Zealand economy and I wanted to be part of that future.
I really enjoyed my time at Massey, and I would take any opportunity to give back and highlight the degree that I studied.
Once I completed my degree, I was able to take out the FMG Younger Farmer of the Year grand final. It was a great opportunity, as a young guy, to have a crack a title like that, it was awesome.
Massey has a fantastic reputation for its agricultural degrees, and gave me a variety of related courses to choose from. My study experience has also been fantastic. I thoroughly enjoyed my undergraduate degree. In particular I liked that we were able to apply what we learnt in lectures to actual on-farm situations by having multiple field trips and talking to farmers. Agriculture students are a tight-knit community and that has made my study experience even more enjoyable.
My degree was challenging but extremely rewarding. Every course that was part of it was an aspect of agriculture that I wanted to master, I can definitely see the value in completing each.
At Massey University I found myself being challenged by both my peers and mentors to achieve to the best of my ability.
Upon completion of my degree I found it very easy to get a job. There is high demand for agriculture students in general, but more so for rural valuation students.
