Moredun supports RHET’s Food and Farming Day

Moredun were delighted to be part of the Royal Highland Education Trust’s Food and Farming Day at Auchincruive this week (Wednesday 26th September).

Over 100 P4 pupils from local Ayrshire schools and their teachers took to the countryside to learn about food and farming.

As one of the exhibitors, Moredun were on hand to talk to the children and their teachers about the nasty bugs and beasties that can make sheep ill.  The award winning Healthy Sheep are Happy Sheep exhibit is a great interactive introduction to the importance of safeguarding farm animal health, and generated lots of enthusiasm and questions from both the pupils and teachers.

Healthy Sheep are Happy Sheep

Supported by the Scottish Government, the objective of RHET’s Food and Farming Days is to provide a ‘hands-on’ educational experience to enable pupils to learn where their food comes from and provides an opportunity for children to be exposed to local farming and the countryside.

Joanne Watts, Science Communicator at Moredun commented on the day, “Moredun were delighted to support the Royal Highland Education Trust with this fantastic initiative. Farming and education is at the heart of what we do and it was great to be involved in such a fun and educational event”
