YFCU Silage Assessment Winners 2017

The final of the YFCU’s silage assessment competition, which is sponsored by John Thompson and Sons Limited, took place at the Association’s stock judging finals day at CAFRE, Greenmount.
Over 700 members took part in the heats earlier in the year and the top placed members made it through to the final to battle it out assessing samples of silage.
YFCU would like to take this opportunity to thank John Thompson and Sons Limited for their continued support of this event and especially thank judge Ronald Annett for his time and expertise.
