Society awards for agriculture students

Pembrokeshire Agricultural Society presented two Coleg Sir Gâr students with awards at this year’s Pembrokeshire Show.

Rhys Jenkins, who lives in Jeffreyston, won the full-time agricultural student of the year award for his extended diploma studies.  

He owns a flock of pedigree ewes which he regularly shows as well as working as a Shepard at Windsor Farm, for the Phillips family. He is hoping to progress to a higher apprenticeship or a part-time foundation degree.

Joe Doyle, who started his agricultural training at 16, won the part-time student of the year award. 

Employed by Southern Pitts Dairy Ltd, Joe is responsible for a herd of 400 cows and has recently progressed to a higher level four apprenticeship.

Jan Mathias, Coleg Sir Gâr training advisor for work-based learning in agriculture, said: “The college is grateful for the society’s continued support of its students.

“These prestigious awards recognise and raise awareness of the importance of young people coming through the sector, creating rising stars in the agricultural industry.”
