Agriculture at CAFRE
Our farms at Greenmount are the focus for the educational activities at the campus. They provide an excellent practical learning resource for students undertaking programmes in Agriculture.
The College Farm is made up of the Dairy Centre (170 hectares), the Beef and Sheep Centre (130 hectares) and the Hill Farm Centre (1,040 hectares). The three centres provide a unique resource for students to adopt a ‘learning by doing’ approach while undertaking a course at CAFRE.
Furthermore, the centres are used extensively by Technologists and Advisers to demonstrate and promote the adoption of the latest technological advances within the livestock and arable crop sectors.
