Welsh Assembly Government announces dates of on-farm training events

THE Welsh Assembly Government has announced the support arrangements for farmers who have expressed an interest in entering Glastir, its new land management scheme.

A series of 40 ‘on-farm’ training events have begun across Wales and continue right through the summer.

Farmers can come along and familiarise themselves with the 39 All Wales element management options.

The training events will be delivered by a partnership of the Institute of Biological, Environmental and Rural Sciences (IBERS), FWAG Cymru and Pembrokeshire College on behalf of Farming Connect, and will include sessions on habitat identification and management, wildlife and streamside corridor creation, arable options, field and woodland edge development and farm ponds.

The informative events will be delivered by knowledgeable people from farming backgrounds in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. The events will be open to anyone who wishes to attend - simply turn up on the day.

An event takes place at Carreg y Llech, Treuddyn, CH7 4NZ, on July 14 which will focus on dairy, ponds, grassland, hedges, streamside corridors and slurry.

Another event nearby is at Corwen on July 28.
