Story: Indonesians

Studying dairy farming

Studying dairy farming

In the 2000s Indonesians continued to come to New Zealand to study, with practical courses proving particularly popular. Here, dairy farmers Mochamad Dwi Satriyo (centre) and Ali Mahmud (right) talk about controlling bacterial infection in cows with veterinary nurse Lisa Hime in 2013. With 10 other Indonesian farmers, the pair spent eight weeks doing a dairy training course at Taratahi Agricultural Training Centre in Wairarapa, then went to Massey University in Palmerston North, where they met Hime. Afterwards they travelled to Taupō and Hamilton to look at dairy farming practices.
