Visitor from Australia 3/24/10

Posted March 25th, 2010 — Filed in Highlights

Bud and I spent an enjoyable day with Christine Ferguson.  Chris won a Nuffield Farming Scholarship for 2010.   Every year a selection of farmers from around the world are chosen to study agriculture and their industry by being sent on a whirlwind tour of the globe.  She operates a Rangland Goat operation in New South Wales, Australia.  If you’d like to learn more, check out this website  http://goatcatcher.farmnet.com.au/about/ .
Chris is the third Nuffield Scholar who has visited us in the last few years.  They have all been very bright, ambitious and innovative people and a joy to visit with.  I believe that we have benefited as much from them as they have from us.
