– Radnor – Radnor members, overall winners of the Field Day
Wales YFC held a successful Field Day on Saturday 12th April at IBERS, Aberystwyth hosted by Ceredigion YFC.

The event was sponsored by the FUW and many local businesses supported the event by loaning their stock and machinery for the various competitions. Wales YFC also owes the success of the day to the judges and stewards who gave their time to assist with the event.

Throughout the day young people from across Wales took part in competitions which retain close links with the agricultural industry and rural skills such as the ATV challenge, fencing and stock judging. The Federation gaining the highest marks at the end of the day was Radnor Federation and they were awarded The Brecon and Radnor Suckled Calf Rearing Association Shield. Gwent Federation was in second place and Pembrokeshire Federation were in third place.

Gwennan Davies, Wales YFC’s Competitions Committee Chairman said that the event had been a resounding success, with YFC members from all over Wales attending as supporters and competitors.

“Wales Young Farmers flocked to IBERS to demonstrate their farming skills by stock judging, driving a Mule, fencing, repairing a car, Fferm Factor, and efficiency with safety on the farm. This is a day that goes to the roots of our movement, back to the land. It educates those who are already farming and also those who are not from a farming background ready for the agricultural industry and the skills needed in this area. It engages hundreds of members, there's a bustle about the day and representing your county at a Wales level will give confidence to members to continue in the industry and develop themselves further to become better farmers. Congratulations to all members and thanks to the FUW for sponsoring this event - without their help it would not be possible for our members to compete at this level."
