Prince Charles advocated the students of Askham Bryan College on their sheep husbandry skills during a visit to the Upland Sheep Husbandry Centre at Low Beckside Farm, near Mungrisdale, Cumbria, this week where Level 2 and Level 3 agriculture diploma students showed off the farm’s latest technology.
The prince had a walking tour of six stations including demonstrating lambing accommodation; tailing, tagging and castrating lambs; dog training; information transfer from an electronic race reader to a mobile phone app; electronic shedding, weighing and sorting and use of the combi clamp.
Matt Bagley, head of farms for Askham Bryan College, said it was a ‘great honour’ to host The Prince.
