CAFRE Agricultural Business Operations (Level II) course manager Kenneth Johnston pictured with course tutor Dr Alistair Boyle highlighting the upcoming closing date for course applications.

The classes will begin in early October and run weekly for 20 weeks. All of the classes will be based in one of the three CAFRE Campuses – Greenmount, Loughry and Enniskillen. Classes will be sector based – dairying, beef, sheep, poultry, horticulture and crops.

You can book a place on a course by visiting the CAFRE website.

A range of evenings, Monday to Wednesday will be available, however, choices will become more limited as classes fill up. Therefore, it is important that you book early to ensure you get the training event which best suits your needs.

The cost of the course is £150.00.

Course manager Kenneth Johnston, said: “This course provides farmers with information on basic business models, cash flow and financing, after which they can generate a gross margin, know their costs, income and net profit. It allows many of them to go home from the course and tease out those aspects of their own farm business. Modules in production, animal/plant health, health and safety and IT are also included.”

The CAFRE Agricultural Business Operations (Level II Certificate) qualification meets the agricultural training eligibility requirements for the Young Farmers’ Payment/Regional Reserve Scheme.

Enrolments received after 4pm on 24 August 2019 may not be eligible for entry to the 2019/20 course.
