Farmer Training

Farm Skils

At St Boniface we are committed to providing knowledge transfer and training services to allow farmers to benefit from the latest ideas to improve animal heath and profitability.

FarmSkills Courses are run for small groups to give you every chance to ask questions and get involved. We aim for highly practical sessions with the emphasis on what you want to know.
