One of Macra's main aims is to help young farmers get established in farming and assist them through learning and skills development. We also work with and represent the views of young farmers nationally and internationally. Macra is a great place to meet and get to know a wide variety of young farmers.

Each county / region within Macra has a Young Farmers Development Group (YFDG) which organises events, farm walks, meetings and other activities. We also have 3C Discussion groups and many great competitions.

Macra also organises a young farmers’ trip abroad each year as well as an annual young farmers’ conference.

If you are a young farmer, Macra is the place to be - learn, meet, speak out and have the craic! If you are not a member yet, click on 'Join Macra' on the home page now.
