DELTA supports young breeders by providing twelve scholarships for livestock technical training. The scholarships are awarded under the framework of the “Gaia Action Plan” implemented by the company for the support and sustainable development of the primary sector and, in particular, animal husbandry. The scholarships relate to professional training seminars at the American Farm School of Thessaloniki and are awarded to stockbreeders’ children and young people engaged in livestock farming.
The goal of the training programme is to provide thorough technical training on good livestock and business practices. Applications for scholarships may be submitted by the children of DELTA’s associate breeders, working in the farm business and intending to gradually take it over, aiming to improve its viability. Applications may also be submitted by young people who wish to engage in farming.
The training body is the American Farm School of Thessaloniki, an independent, non-profit educational organisation with a long history in the education of farmers and livestock farmers, ensuring the connection of theory to practice.
