Our team has been at the heart of agricultural training for over 20 years, as we have worked with vets and farmers developing key skills to improve animal health and welfare and grow farm business success.
Farmer training – FarmSkills
Members of the RAFT team developed and now deliver the highly successful and award-winning FarmSkills programs across the UK. FarmSkills courses are designed to put the farmer first; finding out what you know now and what you’d like to know to improve your business. They are designed to provide practical, farm-based, small group training, delivered by vets and industry experts.
Our trainers are also LANTRA Awards approved and courses can be DairyPro or PigPro appointed.
We offer the full scope of farm training from core livestock skills through to bespoke training plans for progressive farms. We deliver Artificial Insemination training through our independent DEFRA approved licence and practical hoof-care and foot trimming to the level of NACFT licensed foot trimmer standard through our team of licensed foot trimmers.
Veterinary and industry training
Our passion for skills development also extends to running highly specialised technical courses for vets on subjects including embryo transfer, ruminant nutrition and bovine genetics. And likewise for industry such as retailers, processors on animal health and welfare. Visit our Bespoke Industry Training page for further information, or contact us to find out more on 01765 645893.
Our team of project managers are experienced in delivering both FarmSkills courses and national disease control programs such as Action Johne’s and BVDFree. So whether it is the delivery of national knowledge exchange programs, practical farm training or bespoke technical training for farmers, vets or those working in the wider livestock community, the RAFT team have something to offer.
