Tim Bennett was guest of honour at the opening of Harper Adams' new £2.3m dairy unit, on Wednesday 2 September. 900 farmers attended the event at the University College in Shropshire, eager to check out the new state-of-the art equipment. The new unit will improve cow welfare and herd health by using wide open spaces and separate clean and dirty areas.

Harper Adams' Principal, Wynne Jones, introduced Tim who gave a speech before unveiling a plaque to officially open the new unit. Tim explained how the new unit is a really positive move for the industry and shows a renewed confidence that will give farmers hope for the future. He added that he was pleased to see such a high level of investment in an educational establishment that will benefit many generations to come.
