The annual dinner is a tradition for final-year agriculture students, with awards presented to top-achievers.
The Massey Agriculture student of the year award was given to Cameron Shaw. College of Sciences Pro Vice-Chancellor Professor Robert Anderson said that Mr Shaw had been involved in many activities that made him a worthy recipient of the award.
“He has helped first-year students with weekly study sessions. His work over the past few summers with the New Zealand Agricultural Greenhouse Gas Research Centre has resulted in him being listed as co-author on two research papers.
“He has helped to encourage students to come to Massey to study agriculture and he won the Taranaki district final of the Young Farmer of the Year competition. As president of the Massey University Young Farmers’ Club he has helped organise numerous social and fundraising activities and worked behind the scenes to make the Massey club the largest in New Zealand.”
Guest speaker for the event was Abby Hull from DairyNZ, who spoke about her experience as an agriculture student at Massey and her current role as a farm consultant.
