An Opportunity Worth Milking At SRUC’s Crichton Royal Farm

Scotland’s Rural College is to host a course designed to help dairy entrepreneurs become the cream of the crop.


Organised by the Royal Association of British Dairy Farmers (RABDF), the course will be held at SRUC’s Crichton Royal Farm in Dumfries, with the sessions covering topics such as contracts, joint ventures, finance and presenting business cases.


Entrepreneurs in Dairying will take place over eight sessions, starting in September, with a final session taking place at Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire on 8 January 2019.


Professor Dave Roberts, Head of Knowledge Exchange at SRUC, said: “The need for improved entrepreneurship has been identified by the dairy industry and this is an excellent opportunity for SRUC to link in with industry organisations.”


Victoria Chomiak, RABDF course facilitator, said the course has seen some real success stories and has provided numerous opportunities for past attendees.


She said: “It’s great to be working with SRUC on this project and we look forward to enhancing the knowledge of another group through the delivery of key topics that will be vital in the future success of our industry.”


Entrepreneurship in Dairying is run in association in partnership with the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB), the Andersons Centre and the NFU, allowing participants to make valuable contacts within the industry.
