Build It Final at the Ballymena Steam Rally

Members from Castlecaulfield YFC were named the winners of the Young Farmers’ Clubs of Ulster ‘Build It’ Competition at the final which took place recently at the Ballymena Steam Rally.

The competition, which is sponsored by Tesco, saw winning teams from the county heats congregate in Ballymena Show Grounds, where they used their construction expertise to battle it out to make the most structurally sound yet creative hanging hay rack/feeder.  They had 90 minutes in which to make their creation.  Members were restricted in their efforts as the only power tools they were permitted to use were a cordless drill and screwdriver.

 Following an exciting battle, Castlecaulfield YFC were named the winners with Randalstown YFC coming a close second.

 YFCU would like to take this opportunity to thank Tesco for their continued support of the Build It competition and also thanks to the judges who took part on the day.
