Fun, Learning, and Achievement

Young farmers Matty Sharpe and Aled Jones have been busy championing agriculture by demonstrating  their debating skills in London.

The NFYFC Youth Forum duo took part in an annual debating competition which offers young agriculturalists the opportunity to gain invaluable experience by putting their views to industry leaders.  

The industry needs young people to positively promote and explain the importance of British agriculture and YFC has a healthy crop of advocates. Agriculture Minister Jim Paice congratulated all those who took part and acknowledged and encouraged the skill of debating amongst young farmers.

Watch and listen to extracts from the Young Advocates for Agriculture 2011.
