What Our Students Say!

 

Lambing 2021!

The 2021 lambing season was fantastic, with the first of this year’s lambs being born in early March. With over 130 ewes ready to lamb, and a lambing percentage of 256%, our Farm team certainly had a very busy season!

On Sunday 21st March, we hosted a virtual ‘lambing live’ event over on our YouTube channel! Guests were able to see our new lambs, have a look round the farm and learn what our team were up to during this critical time. Check out the full video below!

 

Regenerative Agriculture Project!

Our Land-based Industries students have been contributing to our new Regenerative Agriculture Project by getting involved with some soil science fieldwork – looking at the health, characteristics and physical properties of the soil, including compaction and organic matter content.

This exciting new project aims to demonstrate, and continually innovate, good agricultural practice in a world faced by increasing challenges. In addition, the project will provide an ongoing ‘land laboratory’ for students to gain first-hand experience in trialling innovative approaches to sustainable agriculture!

 

Industry-expert teaching staff!

His research will focus deer farming and landscape-scale management of wild deer, with the aim of combatting habitat degradation and producing sustainable venison in the UK. Find out more below:
