Our first licensee

Our first licensee Regan McCorquindale delivers Get Milking training courses in Waipa and the Waikato.

Regan, who grew up on a dairy farm and is immersed in the industry through his farm advisory business RECO, is well known within the region.

He says the industry is in need of training which will build skills quickly and increase productivity when the right people are recruited, trained, and placed with local farms throughout the area.

“There are a lot of good people who have probably been lost to the industry or not come into it due to a number of factors, and so some farmers have missed out on scaling their businesses because you can’t milk 500 cows on your own – you have to have the right people involved,” he says.

Regan identified Agricademy as the go-to organisation because it is changing the way to train and learn on the job; combining online and on-farm courses for the generation that live and connect online but also need practical training on a farm.  The courses build trainees’ skills quickly so they can be successful in their first months at work.

He says being an Agricademy licensee is an opportunity to change the way people enter into, and upskill, in the industry by making sure they have the right training in place, with Relief Milker and Dairy Assistant courses on offer.

“I’m taking this as an opportunity to be more direct with training, making sure that it is right, and that trainees are matched with the right farms so together, everyone can grow bigger, better businesses that are more efficient, more productive, more profitable, and more sustainable because they ultimately have the right people on the ground,” he says.

Agricademy’s Managing Director Alister Shennan says Regan McCorquindale will be an excellent licensee.

“Delivering high quality dairy training on farm in your local community is the goal of Agricademy’s licensing strategy,” he says.

“Regan McCorquindale  is an exceptional first licensee who is well connected and highly respected in Waipa. Adding Agricademy’s Get Milking training and recruitment services extends his offering to customers, providing an additional platform for growth.”
