Applications are NOW OPEN for our annual exchange with SAYFC where we will select one member to travel to Scotland on June 11th 2018.
The exchange offers a great opportunity to meet young farmer members from Scotland, be hosted by rural families and to gain an understanding of agriculture and the challenges faced by those on the land in Scotland.
The exchangee has the option of a short exchange which finishes on the 24th of June or an extended stay being hosted by families until the 22nd of July.
A highlight of the exchange is attending The Royal Highland Show on 21st– 24th June: where delegates are booked into a Hostel in Edinburgh for the duration of the show.
