The group also discussed plans for closer collaboration in the future. Dr Mayne commented “Young people are the lifeblood of this industry and AFBI wants to ensure we work closely with the YFCU to support the next generation of farmers in Northern Ireland. By providing young farmers with information on the latest research and innovation, we can help equip young farmers with the knowledge to build efficient and sustainable businesses.”
