Staffs YFC Fence Erecting Competition

On Saturday 10th September Staffordshire YFC will be holding their first competition of the new membership year, hosted by kind permission of JA Bloor Agricultural Services Ltd at the Uttoxeter District Agricultural Society Ploughing Match Day. This year the competition is also being supported by Wharfe Rural Planning.

Fence Erecting is one of the many rural skilled competitions organised by Staffordshire YFC and gives members who work in teams of 3 the opportunity to utilise their skills to manually erect a stock proof fence using only hand tools to a specified standard, working as a team with clear communication and taking into account Health and Safety at all times.

Ben Wharfe of Wharfe Rural Planning said “Wharfe Rural Planning are delighted to be able to support the Staffordshire YFC Fencing Competition at this year’s Uttoxeter District Agricultural Society Ploughing Match.  We are thoroughly looking forward to meeting the SYFC competitors and watching their skills in what will no doubt, be a highly spirited and exceedingly competitive competition.    Our aim at Wharfe Rural Planning is to support the future of the agricultural community by making the planning process simpler, more accessible and less stressful.”

After the competition, the two highest placed teams will go forward to the West Midlands Area round of this competition, which is part of the National Federation of Young Farmers Clubs competitions programme, in June 2023.
