Study Abroad January 2018
Interest Meeting March 1, 4:30 room 049 TNS Hall
Study beef cattle, sheep, and dairy cattle, horses and sustainable farm management, and current issues facing agriculture and the environment. New Zealand is a spectacular country full of beautiful scenery, friendly people and innovative farmers. New Zealand is also one of the most agriculturally diverse and efficient countries in the world. Students will also enjoy the natural beauty and animals (domestic and wild) of the Canterbury Plains, Southern Alps, glaciers, mountain lakes, and temperate rain forest.
Based at Lincoln University on the South Island of New Zealand, just outside of the city of Christchurch on the Canterbury Plains, you’ll meet farmers, entrepreneurs and agricultural professionals as you study current issues facing the agricultural industry and pastoral livestock production. In addition you will learn about the history and settlement of New Zealand, one of the younger countries of the world and Maori culture (the native Pacific Islanders of New Zealand) through excursions to historic stations, modern farms, the Canterbury Museum, and The International Antarctic Centre.
