Students tell about their experience

Olga Jerjemenko, Russia

I live in Krasnodar and since graduating I'm teaching livestock farming at the university. There are a lot of livestock farms around Krasnodar, which breed cattle, pigs, poultry and even horses. I decided to take a break and to work in Germany at different enterprises. I wanted to gain new experience, to learn a foreign language in the other country. At first I worked on a huge ox fattening farm. The hosting family, the farm owners, was very nice. I learned a lot from them. Then I had a chance to visit the farmyards together with the veterinary and to learn the differences between our and German agriculture. The last place of my internship was the cattle and pig instructional farm from the Chamber of Agriculture. There I learned some new technologies in animals keeping and feeding. I will come back to Russia with new knowledge, which I will be able to share with the others.

Norberto Frederico Schmidt, Argentina

My family's farm has approximately 65ha. We mainly grow tea, namely Paraguay tea. Besides, we keep cattle for our own needs. My grandparents are from Germany and from my granddad I learned to speak German. When I heard about DEULA program in Brazil, I wanted to take part in it very much. I decided to go to Germany for one year and DEULA-Nienburg organized for me an internship on the big dairy farm with hundreds of cows. My working day started at 5 am. Within my responsibilities were dry cows and calves. I always assisted to the veterinary, when he came and that was very great. During my internship I learned a lot about cows, their health support and their feeding. At home in Argentina I would like to apply the gained knowledge on my own farm. We've planned to get more cows and also I would like to apply practically my knowledge in the forage conservation. Germany made a really great impression on me. Especially I was amazed by the weather: for the first time in my life I saw snow. It hardly ever snows in the place where I come from.
