“I work with some intelligent, experienced people and participate in some big projects”

Stacey grew up on a dairy farm in the Waikato which developed a passion for agriculture.

After three years of studying, Stacey found she enjoyed farm management papers the most.

“My Honours project involved looking at the sustainability of system-5 dairy farms in the Waikato. This helped me gain a position with AgFirst.”

Stacey’s long-term goals include remaining with AgFirst and continuing to enjoy the professional support offered in a large consulting firm and the variety of challenges it offers.
