Welcome to Hay Inc.
We offer an opportunity for young people to gain new agricultural skills, education and experience.
The courses provide hands on training modules that cover all the necessary skills of stockmanship in both sheep and cattle and farming skills. We provide a base line education / experience for young people to use as a spring board to a rural career.
Our aim is to introduce young men and women into the rural workforce with a short course/ experience in rural education conducted in the Hay area.

The Hay Inc Rural education training program enabled me to learn new skills, better my existing skill set, gain confidence in myself and network with other young people from across Australia. The trainer’s experience and knowledge was invaluable and the nature of the course enabled me to contact and form professional networks with all of the committee members, volunteers and various people involved with the course. I would highly recommend this course to young people interested or currently in agriculture whom are looking for a practical and diverse training program to further their skills.
“By participating in this course, I have gained essential skills and knowledge that I have been able to bring back and implement in my own workplace in day-to-day operations and management decisions. This course also gave me the opportunity to network with professionals within the Agriculture industry, local farmers and young like-minded people in my district, enabling me to begin building the foundations of relationships that I will retain throughout my career. I recommend this course to not only people already working in the industry, but also those that would like to pursue a career in Agriculture. Information in the course was relevant and up to date, as the instructors are people who have worked in the industry for many years, and are well respected in their chosen fields.”
“Hay Inc is a unique program that gives first hand exposure to the participants as they learn about the practical operation of large scale grazing enterprises. Participants gain a lot and mentors and trainers gain from the experience in equal measure. I encourage all those who aspire to engage in the industry to take a place in the Hay Inc program. The program caters for those with nil experience on the realm of agriculture through to those who wish to brush up on their skill set. Well done to Hay Inc on a first class program”
