National Federation of Young Farmers' Clubs

Fun, Learning, and Achievement

24 January 2013


NFYFC has teamed up with EBLEX to run another of their popular ‘Meat for the Market’ courses.

The course, which is free to all Young Farmers’ Clubs members, will concentrate on how to produce lamb for today’s market and offers practical farming and business skills.

More than 20 YFC members attended the last event in November in Gloucester, and learnt how to fine tune their beef handling, selection and judging skills.

Stuart Jakeman, YFC’s South East Area Chairman, has previously attended a Lamb Meat for the Market event;

"The training was a great balance between theory and practical work which gave us the opportunity to hone our skills. All the skills covered are transferable to work on the farm and also stock judging within YFC itself. It was a really useful and informative day and it will be very useful for grading sheep for the market on my home farm."

To book a place on the Lamb Meat for the Market training course on January 31st in Chesterfield, download a programme and booking form here.
