The YFCU stand at Balmoral is partnered again this year by the Yellow Wellies Campaign of the Farm Safety Foundation.

Throughout the show, the YFCU stand will be found beside the cattle rings and will be staffed by members from the YFCU who will be on hand to welcome visitors and answer any questions on the association.
