Students partake in study tour to Scotland

Share

25 February 2019

BSc Agriculture and BSc Animal Science students recently took part in a three day study tour as part of their Sustainable Upland Module.

The group visited a number of research facilities and commercial farming enterprises in hill and upland areas of Scotland and discussed issues such as precision livestock farming, selection of stock for immunity to disease and the future of upland farming in light of ongoing changes to support mechanisms.

As in previous years the students were a credit to the Harper Adams during the visits with every one of our hosts remarking on how focussed our students are and how aware they are of issues relating to the sector. The quality of the questioning and discussions our students were able to have with the various stakeholders was very impressive. I would also like to thank Kate Holmes for her work in ensuring, as ever, the smooth running of the study tour.
