BDCI bursary awarded to meat and livestock students

Three students at Harper Adams University have received funding for their remaining years of full-time study.

The Butchers’ and Drovers’ Charitable Institution (BDCI) bursary is available to all first or second year BSc of FdSc students whose studies are directly related to a future career in the meat and livestock industry. Preference is given to those who have family or employment links to the industry, or who are intending on seeking employment in the industry.

This year’s three recipients were joined by Ted Hoefling, treasurer for BDCI, alongisde the three candidates from last year, to receive their £5,000 reward.

“I was honoured to be able to present these bursary awards on behalf of BDCI,” said Hoefling. “BDCI is here to help in many ways, from those who may have fallen on hard times to encouraging and financially assisting young people who will be pursuing careers in the meat and livestock industry.

“These bright young students were all so appreciative of their awards, it means so much to them financially, it is wonderful for BDCI to be able to contribute in this way.”

This years’ recipients are: Harriet Noble, BSc (Hons) Agriculture with Animal Science; Susan O’Neill, BSc (Hons) Food and Consumer Studies; Jessica Tomley, FdSc Agri-Business.
