The New Zealand Society of Animal Production has received funds from contributions made in memory of the late Murray Woolford which have been invested as fixed deposits or debentures to provide income to be disbursed through grants made from the Murray Woolford Young Dairy Scientist Award


The objectives of the Award are to provide opportunities for early career scientists (less than 10 years following Award of PhD) to build their professional network by travelling to research institutions, technology development companies, or dairy industry organisations in countries engaging in dairy production. In particular, the Award is intended to support the acquisition of new technical skills or exposure to new ideas through travel to a conference and/or visits to relevant organisations that have the potential to benefit the New Zealand dairy sector. Preference will be given to applicants displaying a passion for innovation, creativity and lateral thinking in their current research program. Applicants must be a financial member of the New Zealand Society of Animal Production for at least 12 months.
