Members of the Nuffield Farming Scholarship Trust will be at this year’s Pig and Poultry Fair, encouraging visitors to apply for a scholarship, as an opportunity to contribute to the future of the UK pig industry.
“The Fair typically attracts individuals who are excited about new developments in the industry and take the opportunity to exchange ideas and knowledge with contemporaries,” said Nuffield, who will have a team of scholars based on the Aviagen stand at the event.
“The Trust is passionate about recruiting enthusiastic, progressive and knowledgeable candidates aged between 22-45, who genuinely want to make a change to UK agriculture and their businesses.”
Kent farmer and 2015 scholar, Doug Wanstall, added: “I would encourage anyone with enthusiasm and ideas for the future of the industry to apply. It’s an amazing experience and offers lifelong opportunities to be engaged in the agricultural community.”
