Young Beef Farmer Sustainability Programme


Macra Agricultural Skillnet, in association with Dawn Meats, is delighted to announce the launch of its Young Beef Farmer Sustainability Programme 2018. The programme is designed to help ambitious young farmers to develop their farming skills, their businesses and commercial awareness. Macra Agricultural Skillnet invites young farmers to apply for a place on the programme, which runs for 5 months from August to December 2018. Fourteen modules will be delivered over the duration of the programme including a trip to the UK in January 2019. The closing date for applications is Sunday 15th July 2018

The 15 participants who completed the YBFSP in 2017 tell us a little about their experience and why any young beef farmer should take part - click to see our video.
