Members were tasked with looking at their own farm enterprise and how they implement environmental sustainability.
Environmental sustainability focuses on four main aspects:
1 Building and maintaining healthy soil
2 Managing water wisely
3 Minimizing air, water and climate pollution
4 Promoting biodiversity
The winner of the competition was the Johnston brothers from Randalstown Young Farmers’ Club.
Judge Andrew Gracey from Ulster Wildlife said: “The Johnstons have showcased how their farming enterprise has both a connection with farming green and farming profitable which is what it’s all about.
“They hit on some important topics including: renewables, ammonia and biodiversity.”
