Final year Agriculture students have been out in the field (and up on the mountains) with an upland study tour in Scotland this week.
With blue skies and fine weather, the students had a great three days visiting research facilities, learning more about upland farming - and even meeting an award-winning Harper Adams alumnus!
See our round up of tweets from the field trip below.

Thanks again. JD had warned me for the weather, so to have the ?? on our backs and see the mountains in their glory made it all the better!— Nicky Naylor (@NickyNaylor2) February 23, 2023
