NFU Mutual, the UK’s leading rural insurer, has agreed to sponsor the Centre for Agricultural Innovation at Bishop Burton College in East Yorkshire for the next three years.
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.
The 56th annual stockmanship competition took place at Bishop Burton College earlier this week – officially making it the oldest college-run stockmanship competition in the UK. And for many of the 120 Level One and Level Two agriculture students taking part, it was their first time showing livestock.
