Farmers invited to a ‘great day on the farm’ at practical pest control training boot camp

Farmers across the UK are invited to a working farm in North Yorkshire to take part in a unique training event designed to improve pest control on rural sites.


Hosted by leading pest control supplier, Killgerm and pest control solutions manufacturer, BASF, the event will feature a packed agenda including live demonstrations, presentations, group discussions and practical sessions from industry experts, throughout the day.

Taking place on Thursday 20th June, the event will run from 8.30am - 4pm at Top House Farm, Rawcliffe Bridge. Attendees will get practical tips and advice on rural pest control, as well as a free 3kg tub of Selontra® and a 3kg tub of Monitoring Paste®, providing they hold approved UK stewardship certificate. Admission is just £60 + VAT, with complimentary breakfast and freshly cooked fish and chips for lunch.

Attendees can expect to cover topics such as trapping and baiting techniques, wildlife management, proofing and monitoring methods, as well as advice writing environmental risk assessments and an in-depth review of the Red Tractor specification, along with the opportunity to ask questions and discuss with representatives from Red Tractor.

Laurence Barnard, Country Business Manager for BASF’s Professional & Specialty Solutions, commented: “Following the success of first on the farm day that was announced earlier in the year and sold out almost instantly, BASF and Killgerm are pleased to be hosting a second day to allow for even more farmers to get the chance to learn from this unique training day!

“The agenda is packed with interesting topics to help broaden farmers’ knowledge on rural pest control, as well as a deep dive into the updated Red Tractor framework, and how this impacts rodent control on farms.  

“The rural setting means we’ll be able to give guests real examples of problems that the farm might have experienced, as well as provide practical demonstrations showing how to combat these issues. It is going to be an unmissable day!”
