The Young Farmers’ Clubs of Ulster (YFCU) has announced that United Feeds is continuing its sponsorship of the prestigious Member of the Year competition.

The ethos of this competition is to provide an opportunity for clubs to highlight the work of members who have continuously dedicated their time to their club and shown great commitment and enthusiasm.

The competition takes the form of two parts. Each club nominates a deserving junior and senior member who attends interviews arranged by their respective county committee. The top participant from each County then makes it through to the final round which consists of competitors being interviewed by selected independent judges.

YFCU President Roberta Simmons said: “We are delighted to welcome United Feeds as the continued sponsor of our popular Member of the Year competition. The winners of the junior and senior sections will be announced at our AGM & Conference on Saturday, April 9, at La Mon Hotel, Belfast, and I know the results will be eagerly anticipated. I would like to take this opportunity to thank United Feeds, especially Clarence Calderwood for supporting our competition.”
