  1. Telford-A Division of Lincoln University

  2. NAAE CONFERENCE 2014 Dunedin Airport Telford – a Division of Lincoln University - Balclutha

  3. Introduction Telford - A Division of Lincoln University has been in the South Otago farming community for nearly 50 years when, in 1964, the Telford Farm Training Institute emerged as a training facility for agriculture. Today, Telford educates thousands of students throughout New Zealand, in a variety of agricultural courses. The on-campus facility, which is based in South Otago, has large scale sheep/beef, dairy, deer and forestry units with a total area of 880ha. The farms are commercial operations, providing real farming experiences.  We would like to propose that our well equipped campus be the venue for hosting the 2014 NAAE Conference .

  4. Why Telford? Telford is a rural agricultural training campus which runs courses in agriculture, horticulture, equine, apiculture and forestry. Telford is a centrally based training institution, situated 80km (50 minutes) south of Dunedin and 7km from Balclutha in a picturesque rural setting. Telford is able to provide accommodation, catering, and a range of classrooms all on the one site. All parts of the campus are easily accessible. In 2010 Telford merged with Lincoln University and now has access to many of the resources available from the University eg tutors and scientific staff.
