Only 100 spaces are available for YFC members to sign up to an online agri debate featuring NFYFC President and world-renowned rugby referee Nigel Owens.

The YFC AGRI event, called Different Ways of Doing the Same Thing, will be hosted during National Young Farmers’ Week on 28 October at 7.30pm and feature a range of farming and rural topics highlighted in the recent YFC AGRI research findings.

More than 500 people took part in the online survey, which is being analysed by Rose Regeneration, and YFC members were also involved in telephone interviews to discuss the impact of Covid-19 on YFCs and farming.

Key topics in the survey cover rural housing issues, broadband connectivity, views on the future of farming, wellbeing and skills and training.

Alongside Nigel Owens, other panellists so far include Somerset FYFC’s County Chairman and Vice Chairman of AGRI Tom Pope and Rose Regeneration Managing Director Ivan Annibal. The debate will be chaired by YFC AGRI Chairman George Baxter from Cambridgeshire FYFC.

George said: “We’re delighted to welcome Nigel Owens to YFC AGRI’s online debate and include him in this important discussion. The results of the surveys give a clear picture of how young people feel about their farming and rural future and we will be sharing these findings at the start of National Young Farmers’ Week ahead of our debate.

“We only have 100 spaces available, so hurry if you want to be part of this exclusive event, where you can pose questions to the panel, including Nigel.”

Limited spaces are available to join the live debate and members can register for free here. Spaces will be issued on a first come, first served basis and it is expected to be a popular event.
