In the current day, Cheshire YFC is aimed at more than just the typical farmer, with many member’s coming from the County’s larger towns and beyond. There are eleven diverse clubs affiliated to the federation, who compete against each other in a variety of competitions across the YFC year, from honing stockjudging skills to showcasing sporting talents, Junior Quizzing to Senior Debating, there is something for everyone to try their hand at – not forgetting the wonderful opportunities to socialise and meet new people and celebrate achievements at discos and balls!
Welcoming anyone between the ages of 11-30, there is something for everyone and the Royal County Cheshire Show has to be one of the highlights of our year as we proudly present our floats, parading them in the main ring before our horse drawn carriage, which leads with our newly crowned ambassadors, our Dairy Queen and Maids, for the first time.
Cheshire YFC at Cheshire Show 2019 boasts a busy two days of YFC fun for all – make sure you come along to visit our YFC marquee for the chance to speak to some of our members, meet some new faces and learn more about who we are…
Tuesday 18th June 2019
Come and visit us on the first day of the show where our club stands will be judged.
Each of our eleven clubs – Altrincham, Beeston, Congleton, Knutsford, Nantwich, Macclesfield, Malpas, Middlewich, Sandbach, Stretton and Romiley – will be depicting their club throughout the last 12 months to showcase their favourite YFC competitions and events, their achievements and successes, and members in positions of responsibility.
Brand new for 2019, Cheshire YFC and the North West’s NFU have been busy working together to launch an exciting farm safety campaign – Making PTO Shafts Safer. Following the wonderfully successful achievements of Devon YFC, twelve local machinery dealerships have teamed up with Cheshire YFC and the NFU to offer local businesses free PTO safety checks on machinery and discounted repairs if needed. All in Cheshire YFC are excited to showcase this on the Tuesday and promote the campaign to all.
Tuesday night’s Tug-o-War competition is going to be back for another year. With the coveted trophy making its way back to Staffordshire last year, Cheshire clubs and friends from other Counties will compete in both male and female teams for the title. Join us from 6.30pm outside the YFC marquee to see what all the fun is about!
Wednesday 19th June 2019
The second day of the Royal Cheshire County Show is the day where Cheshire YFC showcases their infamous float competition. With a theme of ‘decades’ this year, each club will showcase their building and painting skills in a team effort to depict their chosen era. Make sure you wander around at judging time where members will be in full costume, dancing, acting, even singing to the music of their decade, with floats from the 1920s and beyond.
The Grand Parade will precede the procession of our floats and culminate in a water fight in true YFC light-hearted fun!
You don’t have to be a farmer to be a Young Farmer!
