Additionally, trainees will be provided with a heading and huntaway pup to aid their training.

GFF's core principle is straightforward: training "by farmers, for farmers." Their strategic priorities include:

Opportunity for Young People: Providing motivated young individuals the chance to enter the sheep, beef, and deer industry with confidence through supported training and development.

Employer-Led Career Pathways: Offering an industry-respected, employer-led career pathway that enables motivated young people to progress in their careers.

NZQA Approved Programs: Delivering NZQA approved on-farm programs based on proven methods and future-focused strategies.

Liaison Support: Offering essential liaison support to geographically isolated learners.
