Lyons Farm Goes Virtual to Support Leaving Cert. Students

Each year Agri Aware organises a series of Farm Walk and Talk events at Teagasc Colleges and Research Farms around the country to give Leaving Cert. Agricultural Science students valuable exposure to the reality of life on a working farm. Unfortunately, this year’s planned event at UCD Lyons Farm was cancelled due to the threat of COVID-19, but staff from UCD School of Agriculture and Food Science responded quickly to ensure students didn’t entirely miss out on the experience. They created a virtual farm tour through a series of videos covering a broad range of topics, from grassland science to sustainable sheep production.
