Insight into Agriculture – farming for non-farmers
The Royal Agricultural University (RAU) is pleased to offer a two day ‘Insight into Agriculture’ training course aimed at business professionals with no previous knowledge or experience of farming, who wish to gain an insight into the agricultural industry.
The course, which will be held on Monday 13 and Tuesday 14 April 2015, introduces delegates to the ‘Farming Year Cycle’ and provides an understanding of the potential impact it has on a farmers’ life.
The two day training course programme will include:
- The Farming Year
- Arable Industry
- Livestock & Dairy Husbandry
- Commercial Farming
- Single Farm Payment-issues and opportunities
- Visits to University farms
- Visit to a Milking Parlour
- Farm Business Tenancies Joint Venture, Share and Contract Farming

A delegate from a previous course said: “Overall the best course I have been on in 40 years! Very relevant to my working requirements within the agriculture sector and will be of great value in the future. None of the sessions were ‘over my head’ and it remained fascinating.”
Tim Young, Director, Surveillance Group Ltd, said: “I thought the course was extremely well structured and presented with just the right mix of farm visits and workshops. I found the content very enlightening both as a private individual entering farming and as a Company Director supplying services to the sector. I will be recommending the course to several business associates.”
