A month to go for 2022 Nuffield Scholarship Applications. These close on 15 August. If you know someone who could benefit from a scholarship, please encourage them to apply now. To help them, there is now a writing guide on the web page with some top tips on how to put together an application.
In our podcast ‘Ideas that grow’, we talk with Trish Rankin on doing better with farm rubbish.
And is there a link between animal welfare, mental health and farm succession? We interview 2009 Nuffield Farming Scholar Mandi McLeod in ‘Alumni in the Spotlight.’
Finally, congratulations to Kellogg course 43, who graduated on Friday, 9 July.
We hope you enjoy this issue of The Rural Leader.

In this month’s episode, Bryan Gibson talks to current Catchment Group facilitator and recently appointed AGMARDT Associate Board Member, Trish Rankin.
In 2019 Trish was Dairy Woman of the year and completed a Kellogg Rural Leadership Programme in the same year. For her Kellogg research she looked at on-farm rubbish and the ‘take, make, dispose’ economy that creates it.
Building on this, Trish discusses responsibly tackling the rubbish a farm can generate and some strategies to improve on the past’s ‘throw it in a hole’ mentality. Trish wants us all to do better with rubbish.
Applications for the 2022 Nuffield Farming Scholarships are now open. We would like to ask you, our Nuffield and Kellogg Alumni and industry partners, to approach any potential candidates you may know and encourage them to apply.
Applications close 15th August. Click to go to the application page.

So, you’re looking to craft a cut-through Nuffield Scholarship application.
If you’re like most people, the real struggle is getting started. There is something you can do while you stare blankly at the blinking cursor – ask yourself why?
Why am I applying for a Nuffield Scholarship? Your motivation is important. It will help you form a plan. And a plan usually leads to a better crafted anything.
Applications for the first 2022 course close 14 November, 2021.

We caught up with 2009 Nuffield Scholar Mandi McLeod, who was speaking to us from Pirongia, Waikato.
Mandi is an agri-business consultant who specialises in farm animal welfare, on both sides of the supply chain.

The Meat Industry Association and Beef+Lamb New Zealand have published our biannual “Barriers to International Trade” Report. This report scopes the tariff and non-tariff barriers that the sector faces and sets out the context for the sector’s global trade.
It is an important analysis aimed at supporting the New Zealand Government’s efforts to open new markets and resolve trade barriers.
