The Youth Development Programme (YDP) is for young beef cattle enthusiasts aged between eight and 24 and through the organisation of the Aberdeen-Angus Cattle Society’s YDP co-ordinator Gayle Bersey involves a series of regional workshops through the summer building up to the National Final in September.
Participants get the chance to gain valuable experience from some of the industry’s top show men and women on preparing cattle for show and sale, as well as speakers from across the industry on a range of topics such as animal health and welfare, nutrition and retail and market specifications.
Not only is the YDP educational, but the workshops are also good fun with a chance to mix with like-minded people. You don’t have to be an Aberdeen-Angus breeder you just have to be ready for the challenge.
Details will be announced in 2017 regarding the senior conference and summer workshops.
