If you're lucky enough to get the chance to study on our beautiful Brackenhurst Campus here at Nottingham Trent University (NTU), you'll find it, literally, a breath of fresh air! And not only is it home to our School of Animal, Rural and Environmental Sciences (ARES) - it's also a working farm.

Our 200-hectare estate houses a herd of award-winning Lincoln Red cattle, a flock of Rouge cross Beltex sheep, acres of arable crops and much more.

Our facilities include

  • specialist cattle roundhouse that can be used for animal observations and to develop your handling skills of larger breeds
  • a machinery pool with two advanced tractors fitted with modern self-steering equipment
  • modern equipment with the latest technology for crop establishment and nutrition.
