“I like Ruralbiz Training as it works very well with agriculture and is very flexible” which is incredibly important to Angus who travels along the east coast of Australia working on crops. Angus Tomlinson from Dubbo NSW knew all throughout high school that he wanted to work in Agriculture. After finishing high school, he worked odd jobs to make ends meet but wasn’t sure what kind of Agriculture he wanted to work in! “I started near Dubbo working on sheep farms before getting an itch to travel north to see how agriculture changes.”

After leaving Dubbo, Angus headed to Barcaldine to help with D8 chaining regrowth before following harvest season down the east coast. I “started at Claremont QLD and finished at Tungabah Vic working for a number of contractors and local farmers who needed workers.” Angus is now working at Warren NSW on an irrigation and broad-acre farm. It has shown him how broad agriculture really is as “I am now working on a farm that grows cotton when have water and a variety of winter crops from wheat to chickpea and canola.” 

“This is why studying with RuralBiz Training has been important. I am learning about the different types of agriculture and can tailor my study around busy seasons.”
