In particular, the chief economist of the enterprise spoke about the main competencies of a modern economist; the chief agronomist told about the peculiarities of growing crops; the deputy chief veterinarian of the enterprise told about the peculiarities of animal husbandry.
The students also visited the farm: they saw how pigs and cattle were kept, how milk was collected, and haylage was harvested. We visited the field: we saw modern agricultural machinery at work. They also visited the machine-tractor park of the enterprise. The new Claas combines, like spaceships on wheels, fascinated everyone. And someone was lucky enough to ride on a brand new John Deere tractor.
For students-interns at the enterprise, there are very good conditions: comfortably furnished rooms, modern kitchen, shower room. The hosts hospitably invite students of different specialties to practice. A good end to the tour was a delicious lunch.
