Business centre

A NEW farm business centre available to farmers as well as students is to open at Lackham College, Wilts on Apr 16.

The centre is the result of a deal between the college and Farmplan Computer Systems, the latest in a series of industry links to offset funding cuts, says principal Eifion Williams.

The centre will also be used to train Farmplan customers.

Other agreements include a five-year sponsorship with Melksham-based WMF for a new cattle complex, a similar agreement with Semex for dairy breeding, and a veterinary hospital sponsored by the Hale Veterinary Group of Chippenham.
