28/09/2017 - Visit to Mas Terricabras

Visit to Mas Terricabras

On September the 26th, students of the second year of agricultural production visited Mas Terricabras, an agricultural and livestock farm located in Oristà, in Lluçanès. Mas Terricabras is a family business, where the Rovira Costa family works. They received us, responded to the questions asked by the students, and showed us the livestock, the facilities and the machinery. Mas Terricabras has a diversified production and activity: the production of cereals, legumes, cruciferous crops, fattening of stock breeding calves, many of them come from the herd of cows raised in an extensive system, and one intensive pork production. Other notable aspects of the visit are: The recovery and production of a local variety of chickpeas, currently recognized as a Denomination of Origin, and which is currently difficult to carry out due to the increasing presence of wild boar, and the production of the Forment wheat’s variety. These products are marketed locally and directly, to consumers, restaurants and bakeries to produce high quality bread. The innovative spirit and the initiative made them install in the farm a renewable energy heating system, where as a fuel they consume their own shaft’s production. In addition, they also produce electricity through photovoltaic solar panels installed on the roof of farm. The school, we thank the Rovira Costa family for their kindness and time that has allowed us having the experience of doing this interesting visit.

25/04/2017 - Visita to CAN FELIU

Visita to CAN FELIU

On Friday the 25th April the first year students of Agricultural Production made a visit to the Can Feliu farm, in Campllong. The person in charge, Mr. Xavier Codina, explained to the students the different irrigation systems used for the production of forage intended for feeding the dairy cows. Can Feliu irrigates 120 hectares where they produce a double annual cropping of either ryegrass or barley, and corn. The irrigation systems used are: Center pivot, traveller, solid set, and drip irrigation. Mr. Xavier Codina showed how to use the technology applied to irrigation systems for control and optimization of water use. Another important aspect is the direct sowing of corn after a precision work to uncompactate the soil. Other examples are the use of GPS to the workings of the crops: planting, fertilization, irrigation, and harvesting. Students with this visit have found that the innovation and continuous evolution of agriculture make us to live the reality so called precision agriculture. From school, we thank to Can Feliu and Mr. Xavier Codina their kindness and time that has enabled us to experience this interesting visit. The school, we thank Can Feliu and Mr. Xavier Codina for their kindness and time which has allowed having the experience of this interesting visit.

Visita to the Planta de Compostatge els Sots

On Friday the 25th of April, the first year students of gardening made a visit to the composting plant ELS SOTS in Centelles. Mr. Josep Padrós explained to students the origin of the organic material used in the composting process for the formation of the final products: the compound intended for farming or gardening. It is worth noting that the composting plant uses a system with both anaerobic and aerobic bacteria, which reduces the number of turns of the piles to be done, reduces odours and it improves the process. The school, we thank ELS SOTS and Mr. Josep Padrós for their kindness and time which has allowed having the experience of this interesting visit.
