Showcasing Australian expertise – animal husbandry

In September 1985, three trainees from Gansu returned home after a fourteen-month training program in the Australian sheep industry. Not only did they learn experimental techniques to improve the efficiency of sheep farming, the project demonstrated how well-administered and thoroughly planned training programs in Australia could be of benefit to Chinese industry.
