Ben SellGraduated: Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma in Agriculture
Why did you choose to study agriculture?
Why should youngsters consider the agricultural industry?
Working in the agricultural industry is not a job, it's a passion and a lifestyle, and no one from the outside will ever truly understand the passion until they have experienced it first hand for themselves.
There are two quotes that have stood out for me to sum up agriculture inn fewer words, the first being 'Work hard, play hard' – This is very important because it's just as important to play hard as it is work hard! The other is 'Many people work to live, but I live to work' (Mike Greenaway – Grassmen) and if you ask me, that's a perfect way to sum it up.
Finally, once in your life you may need a policeman, a doctor, but every day, three times a day, you need a farmer, and with the worlds growing population, there will never be a world without farming.
