Dylan Nutting

Newtown, Powys

Dylan Nutting has recently completed his A Levels at Caereinion High School. Looking forward, he is fondly anticipating to put the ardent enthusiasm he’s fostered for agriculture to good measure studying Agriculture with Animal Science at Aberystwyth University. Here, he hopes to explore the science behind livestock production further, a topic which Dylan has a particular interest in. 

Combining his experience of being brought up on a beef and sheep farm in Mid Wales, along with his exposure to numerous sectors such as beef, sheep, dairy and poultry through employment, Dylan feels assured he has already developed a great understanding of UK agricultural systems. Nevertheless, keen to learn more, Dylan aims to travel to countries such as New Zealand to discover different systems and practises. 

Dylan enjoys spending his spare time playing rugby for his local youth team and socialising with his local Young Farmers Club (YFC). Taking part in a variety of competitions from stock judging and tug of war, to acting and playing the piano and guitar in the YFC Eisteddfod and annual drama festival, Dylan is a keen participant. 

In the future, Dylan hopes to apply his passion for agriculture to a career in livestock research or consultancy. He also hopes to advance his understanding of pasture management and discover more how about performance recording flocks and genetics. 

“I believe that the Agri Academy will be an invaluable experience for me as I’m currently at a stage where I’m starting to consider my future career. I’m fortunate to have already gained experiences working in many different agricultural sectors. However, every day is a school day and I look forward to learn from meeting farmers and industry experts to broaden my knowledge and skills to develop my own business ideas and career.”
