Young Farmer Development Groups


Macra Young Farmer Development Groups operate at county level and provide discussion nights and information meetings for young farmers around the country. IFAC Accountants are Macra's partner for YFDGs in Ireland and Europe.


Check out the latest news from Macra's YFDGs in Ireland and our activities in Europe here.

Various issues of relevance to young farmers are covered by a panel of guest speakers at each regional meeting. Topics covered at past meetings include farm accounts, transfer of land, the Nitrates Directive, GM crops, farm financing and pricing policies with local merchants. Any young farmer interested in becoming involved in a local Young Farmer Development Group or in attending any of these meetings should contact Derrie Dillon on (01) 426 8904 or your Training & Development Officer.
