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.

The YFCU floral art final, sponsored by Tesco, will be held in the sheep shearing pavilion at 3pm.

Following this the junior and senior five-a-side ladies football final will also be held in the cattle rings at 3.15pm.
