Fun, Learning, and Achievement

26 June 2017

Plans are underway to deliver free training for YFC members to hone skills in producing meat for the market.

The Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB) training will also benefit stockjudging competitors and is designed to demonstrate how to select animals for slaughter, produce meat for the market and get better returns for production.

NFYFC and AHDB aim to host the training in three regions, which will include the North, the Midlands and the South, during October and November 2017 and January and February 2018.

Members are being asked for feedback on the type of training they prefer, so that NFYFC can ensure there is sufficient interest, as well as understand the preferences for beef or sheep training in specific regions.

The training options in both beef and sheep are for Live to Dead training at an abattoir (secured by AHDB) or On-Farm Selection training at a preferred farm secured by YFC members.

This free training can take place anywhere in the country (England) and will operate on a first come, first served basis.

Register your interest and preferences for dates and locations online.
