Nuffield Australia 2012 scholarship winner
Linda Eldredge, from Clare in South Australia, received a 2012 Nuffield Scholarship sponsored by Grain Growers Limited. Linda studied ‘real‐time’ business management.
Linda and her husband Rhys farm in the mid‐north of South Australia, with 2000 acres at the foothills of the Clare Valley and an additional 1000 acres in the Apilla district. They are predominantly prime wheat growers with additional crops of barley, canola and some legumes as well as 1000 sheep for prime lamb and merino lamb production.
In addition, Linda services the rural community with educational opportunities and business management consultancy. She used her Nuffield Scholarship to investigate ‘real‐time’ business production systems such as information portals and management applications (apps) to drive increased production and profitability.
Linda identified the US, Canada Ireland and India as countries where she could learn the most about cutting edge technology and leading software developers.
