Greenham Tasmania Scholarship Winner - Tahlia Ling

Tahlia Ling, 19, of Forest, has been named today (March 15, 2012) as the winner of this year’s Greenham Beef and Dairy Scholarship, valued at $10,000.

Growing up on Bothwell Farm, the family beef cattle property, Tahlia assisted with all aspects of farm production. She developed an interest in good farming practices and animal welfare which underpin her ambition to study veterinary science.

Tahlia attended Marist Regional College in Burnie from 2006 to 2011, demonstrating a strong commitment to study and co-curricular activities.

Along the way, she has picked up a swag of awards, recognizing her high level of commitment and enthusiasm. Tahlia represented her school at a number of science and mathematics competitions and in the women’s hockey team.

Away from the books, Tahlia took advantage of an opportunity to volunteer at the Smithton veterinary clinic during school vacations. She assisted with treatment of large and small animals which confirmed her desire to pursue a career in veterinary science.

Tahlia’s social interests include art, horse riding and representing her district and state in women’s hockey.

Tahlia plans to use her prize money to finance the costs of studying away from home. She received offers from four universities but chose Charles Sturt University at Wagga Wagga because it is selectively geared towards large animal skills.

“My plan when qualified, is to return to Circular Head and, as well as providing the normal veterinary services, to run regular short courses for farmers in the management of the more common veterinary problems, thus reducing the need and expense of them calling out the vet for less essential cases. It would be a privilege to be involved in bringing animal husbandry improvements to the local community by empowering and upskilling local farmers,” Tahlia says.

Scholarship applications each year are assessed by a panel of four independent judges from industry and education sectors. Among criteria considered in awarding the scholarship are personal and academic achievements, the potential benefits and relevance of the chosen study area or career path to the Australian dairy industry and how important the scholarship might be in helping the applicant realise his or her ambitions.
