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, piloted and still deliver the highly successful and award winning FarmSkills programmes 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 training, delivered by vets and industry experts.

Our trainers are also LANTRA Awards approved and our courses are 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 call one of our team to find out more – 01765 645893.

Our team of project managers are experienced in delivering both FarmSkills courses and national disease control programmes 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.

        

“I just wanted to write and thank you and the other members of staff for the excellent AI course that I attended this week, it is the best course I have been on and I look forward to putting into practice what you taught me.

Hopefully in the future I will get my son to do the same course and possibly both of us to attend one of your foot trimming courses as well.”
