Thursday 5 Dec 2019

Myerscough College foundation learning students have taken part in a special Christmas Show at Brockholes Arms Auction Mart.

Brockholes 1

A selection of students from the College’s Level 1 agriculture and countryside study programme were invited to take part in the Primestock Show & Sale at the venue at Claughton-on-Brock, where they took part in a show and sale of lambs, as part of the auction in the main sale ring.

The students have worked very hard throughout the term to prepare the lambs and the group came back to Myerscough with plenty of rosettes.

A big thank you to Brockholes Arms Auction Mart for welcoming our students, and giving them all a great experience.

Lecturer in foundation learning, Nicola Eminson-Smith, said: ‘’After lots of preparations and halter training of some of the college lambs, our students represented the college brilliantly and the lambs made a great price too! Well done all!

‘’Thank you to Brockholes Arms Auction Mart for accommodating us and making us feel very welcome.

 ‘’It’s great to show an aspect of what Lodge Farm is doing and one of the many experiences that students get through their involvement with the farm.’’
