Description

Scenic shots of Loughry Agricultural College in Dungannon, which only opened its doors to male students in 1962. Prior to that it had been the Ulster Dairy School and catered only for female students, providing two main courses on poultry keeping, dairy and rural housewifery. 

Here we see the establishment of an orchard. And some pruning techniques.

Notes

Loughry College was established as The Ulster Dairy School in 1908. Prior to that the land belonged to Mr Fleming who had purchased it from the Lindsey family. The Lindseys had lived on the land since 1632. 

 

Today, Loughry is part of the College of Agriculture, Food and Diary Management and offers a wide range of courses for anyone interested in a career in any of these.
