A ‘mighty big aspiration’ to find a balance between food production, the environment and people came a step closer last week when 14 women involved in primary industries graduated from AWDT’s national leadership and governance programme.
A development programme for women involved in sheep and beef farming businesses is set to expand in

AWDT has been granted $289,000 from the Government’s Sustainable Farming Fund to extend its work to three new groups of women.
