The BBC One’s popular Countryfile programme at 7pm on Sunday March 13th will feature a group of students studying Agriculture at Aberystwyth University’s Institute of Biological, Environmental and Rural Sciences (IBERS).

This episode will be focusing on young farmers, and presenter Adam Henson and the crew spent time in and around Aberystwyth, including Trawsgoed Farm where the students helped with lambing and milking.

Cennydd Owen Jones led the group of seven 1st, 2nd and 3rd year students who are studying various agricultural degrees at Aberystwyth University. Cennydd is from Pontsian, Ceredigion and is in his 4th and final year studying Agriculture and Animal Sciences.

Aberystwyth University graduate Caryl Hughes who was the first winner of the National Trust’s ground breaking Llyndy Isaf scholarship in 2013, also joined the group.

This was an opportunity for Caryl to catch up with Adam Henson as her time at Llyndy was featured in a previous episode of Countryfile. The scholarship has subsequently been awarded to another two of Aberystwyth’s Agriculture graduates.
