I chose to go into animal care as I hope to bring farming back into my family. The facilities here are outstanding and better than anything else I’ve seen, with a working farm, equestrian centre and animal care unit. We do tasks around the farm, manage the estate, drive tractors, use machinery, and do fencing and forestry work. It’s really improved my knowledge in the sector.
