The Young Farmers’ Clubs of
Ulster (YFCU) is an exciting and
fun-filled organisation that is for
young people and run by young
YFCU is for young people
aged 12 and 25 years. The
Association is strictly non-political, non-sectarian

Young farmers is all about…
Learn new skills and realise your full potential
You don’t need to be a farmer or
come from a farming background
to join, the only requirement for
membership is an interest in rural life!
Club meetings are usually held on a
fortnightly basis during the months of
September and April. After the formal

Enjoy a wide range of social and travel
Working together to do what you
want to do
YOU – the members. Annually, each club elects a
club leader, secretary and other office bearers who,
together with the members, organise the club’s affairs
for the year. Each club also has representation on its
county committee which co-ordinates YFC events and
activities in the county. All six county committees,
together with other office bearers, make up the
council which is the governing body of
the Association.
The council meets once a
year at the annual AGM
during which time it
elects officials to handle
the day-to-day business
of the Association.
Some young
members are
keen not to sit
back but like to
manage and run
their own club.
Junior clubs are
assisted by an older
member who is
known as the senior
These clubs are specifically for members aged
between 12 – 16 years. They elect office bearers
just like any other Young Farmers’ Clubs and
organise events and activities which specifically
suit them.
Make your mark in Young Farmers.
Get involved, get active and reap
the rewards!
