John Moane

Level 2 Diploma in Work-based Agriculture. Our family farm, near Fivemiletown, has a herd of 100 suckler cows with a significant number of pedigree Limousins and we aim to produce as many high quality bulls as possible for sale ever y year. I enjoy the course because it allows me to learn new skills and pick up new ways and techniques of doing things that will be a great help to me when I take over the family farm.

I have completed several very useful courses including PA1 Spraying and Telehandler certificates. I have enjoyed the industry visits especially the visits to other farms and Fane Valley. It was interesting to see how milk is processed and where the products end up. I would recommend the course to anyone because it allows me to work on the home farm and learn new skills at the same time.
