Reputable Danish Agricultural College in potential and innovating partnership exporting Danish Agricultural Education & total solutions
Old – but still up front
Dalum Landbrugsskole – Dalum Academy of Agricultural Business Denmark – is Denmark’s largest and oldest agricultural college – today a modern international college for further agricultural education with proud traditions and a historical atmosphere.
20% of Danish production performed abroad
For more than 150 years vocational skills have been rooted in the Danish “Highschool” movement educating farmers for the future. The College situated in Odense, the heart of Denmark, provides all levels of agricultural-management education. The fact that 20% of all agricultural production performed by Danish farmers and staff takes place abroad, calls for a strong international profile. It is likely that students, through study trips and international projects, become more confident working abroad and seeking management positions around the world for an agricultural-business career.
Throughout the past 4-5 decades agriculture has developed considerably, constructing highly efficient, large scale production units based on excellent breeding material and technology, but also causing increasing impact to the environment.
Exporting experience and knowledge
The valuable knowledge and experience gained, has today become an export article in great demand from all over the world, expressed as a need for:
- Advanced technology
- Animal welfare systems
- Food safety systems
- Traceability certification
- Sustainability in all productions
- Environmental considerations
- Farm waste management and technology
Dalum has developed its international profile through a broad global network of farm enterprises, colleges, politicians and organisations. Dalum has helped develop vocational training systems in the Baltics and Eastern Europe.
The Danish “Sandwich Model” alternating school education and farm apprentice, building up production and management skills gradually, has been transferred successfully to many countries.
