Twenty Indonesian students from the Northern Territory Cattlemen's Association's Indonesia Australia Pastoral Program have officially settled into the cattle yards in Alice Springs.

They're hard at work learning the ropes before they head off to cattle stations around Northern Australia for a 6-week placement, then it's back home!

The 10-week course has been running since 2012 and aims to provide practical training and keep the good relationship going between the two countries' cattle industries.

Student Dhbora Arfirgin says she's now learnt how to ride a horse, as well as brushed up on her cattle handling skills and animal welfare knowledge.

"I want to [start] a farm for cattle breeding, it's my dream, so I will learn more here."
