Youth Development Programme

Do you know of a young person aged between 8 – 24 years who wants to learn more about beef cattle?  The Aberdeen Angus Cattle Society organises a programme of training events around the UK which cover subjects such as basic cattle handling, stock judging, halter making and preparing stock for the show ring.  The focus is on fun and meeting like-minded people – and it’s all about education and not the Angus breed.  For full details of the events please visit www.aberdeen-angus.co.uk/youth-development
