Herefordshire Federation of Young Farmers Clubs was formed in 1944 with Kingsland YFC. Over the years the federation has seen over 30 clubs come and go and now has 18 open clubs and 2014 celebrates the 70th Anniversary of the Federation.
Not all our members are from a farming background. From accountants to engineers and land agents to builders YFC encompasses all walks of life, it’s more than just farming! At county level there are seven committees which have representatives from clubs to decide what direction the federation heads in. Becoming a committee representative is easy and the organisation.
Below is a brief summary of what each of the committees’ roles are;
Executive: Elect the County Chairman as well as being the link between the committees below, area and national YFC and other rural organisations – a chance for members to have their say on agricultural and rural issues.
Competitions: Help choose and plan what competitions you want members to take part in.
Events: Give your ideas on fundraising events and help create memories
Promotions: Get involved in the development of the year book, rally programme, website and helping promote HFYFC to the public.
Training: Decide what new skills you want to develop and what qualifications you want to gain.
Junior Forum: Represent the views of younger members and offer ideas for the future of the federation.
Management: A small group responsible for overall running of the federation elected by members of the executive committee and are the trustees of the organisation.
The federation is part of the National Federation of Young Farmers Clubs which has over 25000 members across England and Wales, making us part of one of the biggest youth organisations in the country!
