Television presenter Helen Skelton has urged students completing their studies at Bishop Burton College to seize the chance to do something “phenomenal” with their lives.
Rural and allied businesses in the Yorkshire region and beyond benefit from cutting-edge research and a pool of industry expertise which prepares them for the issues posed by climate change, population growth and increasing government legislation thanks to the Bishop Burton Centre for Agricultural Innovation.
The centre has been established to draw together all strands of land-based research currently carried out by staff and students at the college.
By establishing a centre such as this, the results of valuable applied research can be used, built upon and promoted effectively to the betterment of agricultural and allied industries.
This, in turn, creates knowledge transfer between the college, other academic organisations and industry partners, which is then be shared with food producers and other areas of industry.
One of the country’s largest family owned farming business has teamed up with a leading agricultural college to launch a new academy which will train the industry’s future workforce.
Lambing Sunday made a triumphant return to Bishop Burton College at the weekend, with thousands of people from across the region flocking to the family event.
