Description

The course will introduce delegates to the farming year cycle and provide an understanding of the impact it has upon a farmer’s life. This intensive course combines classroom-based and practical learning; helping to grow your own personal skillset and preparing you with the expertise needed to further your professional development. Field-based sessions on our University Farms are an essential part of the programme and delegates will need to bring their wellington boots and waterproofs! There is an emphasis on discussion around points made and questions raised by you.

Subjects covered as part of the Insight into Agriculture course include:

  • The farming year
  • Arable industry
  • Livestock and dairy husbandry
  • Commercial farming
  • Basic Payment Scheme – issues, opportunities and post-Brexit possibilities
  • Renewables
  • Visits to university farms and other agricultural establishments
  • Farm business tenancies, joint venture, share and contract farming
