Young Farming Champion Casey Onus (far left) has the opportunity of a lifetime to join the University of New England (UNE) team travelling to Miami for the International Food and Agribusiness Association (IFAMA)
The University of New England is for the third year in a row attending the IFAMA Conference. As part of the conference UNE will have two teams participating in the Student Case study competition against teams from around the world. The teams have been training for this competition during the last trimester. This training helps them with financial and case study skills as well as presentation skills which are of course important skills for life. This year the Conference is in Miami and the topic is Become the Solution – Technology, Investment, and People: Business Solutions for Food Security.
The IFAMA conference not only gives UNE students the opportunity to learn from International experts they are also able to network with other students with the same interests as well as people from relevant industry and academics from other Universities.

Our teams are lucky enough to be sponsored by Sygenta, Ceres Agriculture, Guyra Milling, Rabo Bank and Rex Airlines and supported by Rimfire Resources. We really appreciate these companies taking an interest in and investing in our students and the future of Agriculture in Australia.
