Your Agricultural Career Starts Here
Do you dream of a career that's not just a job? Imagine catching the day's sunrise as enter the shearing shed; perhaps you're a practical fix-it type who dreams of wide open spaces, fresh air and the chance to put your problem solving skills to work or maybe an 'office' view that includes animals over traffic. RIST students are encouraged to participate in wool handling competitions in Australia and New Zealand, and in recent years our students have had success in these competitions.
