Today we were at a farm and de-horned some calvs. It was really interesting to do it ourself beacuse the vet do it in sweden.
We also went through some practical tasks that will be on the practical tests in the end of next week, like how to move cattle in a safe way, drenching and much more.

About Ahene Project

AHENE stands for Animal Husbandry Exchanges in Northwest Europe. The aim of AHENE project is to investigate if we can organise exchanges of European students to follow their school lessons about Animal Husbandry abroad at one of the partner schools.
We offer eight learning modules of four weeks each to students from Wales, the Netherlands, Sweden and Finland that are our AHENE project countries. This is a 3-year pilot to see if what we are offering will be good practice for the future.

The 4-week AHENE modules all include two weeks of learning at school and two weeks of practical on-the-job learning.

The topics chosen per country combine the partner’s expertise within its…
