The college of Agriculture, Food and Rural Enterprise at Levaghy, Enniskillen, is currently enrolling for its much-acclaimed sheepdog handling course which is available to full and part-time farmers and farming family members.

The three-day course, which involves a demonstration and workshop on the skills of sheepdog handling, looks at how both shepherd and dog can get the most from their close working relationship. Trainees will have an opportunity to get advice on a one-to-one basis. For an application form, contact Gerard Nicholl (028 6634 4824 or
