Alistair Black


Alistair BlackLevel 2 Diploma in Agriculture “I am from a dairy farm in Aghadowey, near Coleraine where we have a herd of pedigree Holstein Friesian cows.  I enjoy working on all aspects of the farm but have a keen interest in livestock and in particular the production of bulls and heifers for sale.

I applied to this course to gain knowledge on all aspects of agricultural production including health and welfare, breeding and grassland management. It has always been my ambition to return home to work on the family farm therefore the option to study on a one year course was the right choice for me.  On completion of the Level 2 Diploma I hope to progress to the Level 3 Work Based Diploma, specialising in dairying.

I am thoroughly enjoying my time on the course especially being able to put theory into practice while working on the Greenmount farm.”
