Get out there and get heard is the call to arms for Young Farmers from NFYFC’s new President Charlotte Smith.
The Radio and TV presenter was officially elected as NFYFC’s President during the 85th Annual General Meeting in Torquay and said she hoped her communication skills could help young farmers during a critical time for the industry.
“At the moment particularly, whatever your views, young farmers will need to communicate those views with people who don’t understand farming, and I am hoping I can help with that,” said Charlotte.
Charlotte attended the Chairman’s Reception on Friday evening at the official opening of the Annual Convention, and then went to the AGRI Forum and the Entertainments Finals on Saturday.
The broadcaster was impressed with the standard of talent at the competition finals and said she would not have liked to have been a judge.

Charlotte took over the role of President from Poul Christensen who stepped down after four years.  He said he had been "honoured and privileged" to have been the Federation's President for the past four years and that he had been "inspired, amused and impressed" with everything YFC does.
A particular highlight for Poul during his tenure was seeing Young Farmers help out during the Somerset floods as it had shown the true spirit of YFCs.
