Organising training courses and farm meetings has become an integral part of the service we offer our large animal clients. We endeavour to provide training in many aspects of animal husbandry and courses are often run with relevance to the time of year. We are often able to gain valuable funding through the South West Healthy Livestock Initiative. This helps us to keep costs to our farmers to a minimum.
For information on forthcoming courses (and other events) please see our Calendar.
