Ag Science -Term 1 Week 8

It’s been a fantastic couple of weeks for the Rural Operations teams. Both the Year 11 and 12 Rural Op students headed out to the University of Queensland Gatton campus to undertake practical exercises.

Year 11 Rural Operations are currently learning all about stock management and they had the opportunity to put into practice, mustering and yard skills for both cattle and sheep. They learnt invaluable skills such as understanding the point of balance of stock, animal welfare, work, health and safety, and workplace communications. The students have now been able to apply their skills and knowledge on the college ag farm, successfully mustering the sheep into the yards and drenching them independently.

The Year 12 Rural Operations class has focused on work, health, and safety which included a mock fire drill. They then applied their work health and safety procedures moving cattle and installing metal panels around trees in the cattle paddock to prevent damage caused by cows.
