Recap of Farm Walk 2020
Over the course of 5 days more than 1,600 Leaving Cert Agricultural Students from over 60 secondary schools nationwide participated in the 'Farm Walk and Talk 2020' which took place in the Teagasc Colleges and Research Farms. The events also featured talks and support from several of our patrons.
Students were able to gain real-life experiences on working farms and were also able to hear talks from leading agri-food industry experts. From observing cows being milked, comparing different breeds of cattle, examining soil profiles, lamb births, watching piglets suckle and farm safety demonstrations the students got to experience the realities of the subjects that they are taught each day in the classroom.
