The village of Trellech, lies between Monmouth and Chepstow and is home to a marvellous collection of antiquities. Now really just a sleepy hamlet, this was once one of the most important towns in Wales - in its medieval heyday it was larger than Newport and Chepstow.
Apart from the many attractions of Trellech, there is a flourishing agricultural economy in the surrounding areas. Beef and dairy cattle are kept on farms of all sizes, from small family units with just a few head, to larger commercialised dairy herds.

The practical, hands on sessions cover all aspects of basic trimming as well as the use, care and maintenance of equipment. As you can see from the number of smiling faces in the group, these courses are also a lot of fun in a low pressure environment that encourages attendees to take part and get the most from their day.
