New Placement Student Fitting Right In


Harper Adams University engineering student Liv Hartshorn has joined ARM Buildings and Farmex’s joint placement position for her year in industry as part of her degree qualification. Liv is based in Rugeley, Staffs at the ARM Buildings Ltd offices but is being managed by Dr Sadie Douglas – Farmex’s Data Services manager. Liv has fitted in really well and has already made a number of farm visits and has been demonstrating her skills with spreadsheets and data handling.

Liv will be talking to other Harper students along with Hugh Crabtree at the forthcoming Placement Fair in November. It will be interesting to see if any other girls have opted for the engineering courses at the university and if so if they or any other students will be interested in real-time monitoring of pig production in the UK.

Liv is the fourth student to work in this position and Farmex hopes that the programme will encourage young graduates to choose a career in the UK pig industry.
