Cain Owen (18) who lives on her family’s beef and sheep farm at Llanerchymeydd on Anglesey was selected to commentate in the main ring as part of S4C's coverage of last year’s Winter Fair, and says this was thanks to the media training she received as a student of last year’s Agri Academy Junior Programme.
“The training was a fantastic introduction to broadcasting and it was a huge honour to then be invited to put my new skills to use at the Winter Fair. It has given me a great opportunity to strengthen my CV so I’m hoping this will lead to new opportunities for work experience within the Welsh agricultural media.
“I’m currently studying agriculture at Coleg Glynllifon as well as helping out on the farm every spare minute. Thanks to the Agri-Academy, I am now far more open minded about my future career prospects.
“The Academy introduced me to a new network of people who are all ambitious for the future of agriculture in Wales. I have made fantastic new friends, and I am confident we will all stay in touch and continue to support each other.”
