Each area is aiming to organize events for the young breeders as well as the annual stock judging competition. It would be great for the North East to become a strong young breeders club and if gained enough members we would be able to organize more events. If your children or grandchildren or anyone you know would be interested in joining please find attached the membership form. It is open to anybody between the ages of 12 and 28. You will receive a quarterly newsletter and information on events being held by each area and also the possibility of carrying out farm swaps and visits.
