The students who took part at the placements were attending the second or third form of the agricultural school at Edelhof in Lower Austria.The most of them see themselfs as future farmers. The curriculum of the agricultural school of lower Austria provides a practical training of four weeks between the second and the third form. Participating in this leonardo mobility project the students get the opportunity to absolve one part of the training at farms abroad. The students were expected not only to cooperate at the farms in milking, feeding and keeping of the husbandry, in harvesting the field crops and in maintanance of machinery and devices but also to get aquainted with the farm management.Therefore the students can study the agricultural production in two different countries of the EU and new technologies mainly in dairy production and in tillage, which are not common on farms in their home country. The students should improve their communicative skills and their handling of a foreign language. By the necessary integration and finding their ways in a complete foreign sorrounding they achieve independence and social competences.
