NC Agriculture Visit
The Barony Campus NC Agriculture group were out on a visit recently as part of their course. The visit was hosted by Mr Michael Kyle of the Linns farm near Torthorwald. Here, he showed them around his 900ha dairy farm and explained to the group how his New Zealand block calving type system is made to work in South West Scotland. It was a very interesting and informative visit and the students enjoyed seeing a different approach to dairy farming, one which allows the farmer and his staff a much more family friendly way of life yet providing a sustainable and profitable business enterprise.
