The Ulster Farmers’ Union has officially launched an in-house training division with courses designed specifically to help members in the day-to-day running of their farms. UFU members will save 20 per cent by doing this course through the UFU training division.
Four courses are on offer initially:
- Safe use of pesticides
- Boom Sprayer (please note – Safe use of pesticides must be completed before booking this course)
- Hand held Applicator (please note – Safe use of pesticides must be completed before booking this course)
- Rodent Control
However, any Lantra course could be offered at short notice if there is sufficient interest. If members have a particular need for a training course, please get in touch to let us know.
The courses will be delivered initially in six locations: Armagh, Dungannon, Limavady, Ballymoney, Banbridge and Enniskillen.
The training will be co-ordinated by Countryside Services Limited (CSL) with all training provided by Lantra approved instructors. Members are able to book and pay for training through the UFU website or by calling Countryside Services on 028 877 89770.
Or for more information contact Derek Lough on 028 9037 0222.

If a cancellation is made within 72 hours or if you fail to attend the scheduled course there will be no refund for the fees.
