National Federation of Young Farmers' Clubs

Fun, Learning, and Achievement

22 February 2018

YFC members can save more than 50% on training courses for their Blue Seal qualification thanks to support from British Wool.

NFYFC members are being offered a two-day course for £80, at a discount of over 50%. To be eligible to take advantage of this offer you must be a current member of a Young Farmers' Club affiliated to NFYFC within England and Wales, and not have attended a course previously.

During the course you will receive an introduction to shearing. You will also cover health and safety and the use of shearing equipment, with demonstrations and hands-on practice. You will be supported one-to-one by an instructor.

There are a range of dedicated NFYFC courses but if these are too far away, or we do not have enough interest in one Area for a full YFC course, an alternative will be offered.

The closing date for applications is 30 March 2018.
