One the key elements of College teaching is to provide students with the latest facilities and learning opportunities to develop their skills and future career prospects. Within the FFIT and Livestock Innovation Centre these include:
- The first commercial UK installation of AfiFarm 5.2 herd management solution and Hanskamp out-of-parlour walkthrough feeders.
- Accurate Diet Formulation system utilising Keenan Pace Technology
- Livestock nutritional research & behaviour monitoring with GrowSafe technology
The use of farm data in management decision making is of paramount importance and we are looking forward to developing this in detailed farm management exercises with our students.
Our teaching staff have the skills and expertise to deliver bespoke training for a range of external organisations. These have included dedicated programmes for utilities companies, bank staff, feed companies, machinery dealers and technical training for sales staff. We can also deliver team building days, covering aspects such as cattle handling, machinery handling and clay pigeon shooting.
