College offers farmers a taste of social media
Farmers are being offered an introduction to social media which is "transforming the way the sector communicates".
Duchy College Rural Business School is hosting an evening on Tuesday, September 25, at 7pm, showing what social media means to agriculture and how farmers benefit through the websites.
The seminar, to be held at Royal Cornwall Showground in Wadebridge, will be presented by Farmer's Weekly Community Editor and media 'guru' Tim Relf.
Head of Duchy College, Andrew Counsell said: "Social media may not be for everyone, but it certainly is having a big impact on the way we communicate.
