Indonesian students muster at CDU

Indonesian university students have completed cattle industry training at Charles Darwin University’s Katherine Rural Campus and toured Casuarina campus’ horticulture and aquaculture facilities.

The 20 animal science students took part in the NT Cattlemen’s Association Indonesia-Australia Pastoral Program, in which CDU is a service provider.

During the three week practical component at KRC, students gained safety skills in areas including horsemanship, livestock handling, quad bike operation, and working at heights.

Before returning to Indonesia the students visited Casuarina campus and met with Horticulture and Aquaculture staff, fed the resident barramundi, sampled organic produce and homemade lemon myrtle tea, and toured various facilities.

More than 50 Indonesian students have completed the 10-week NTCA program since it began in 2012.
