Field Development Team


As part of the field development team, Karen Wasden and Sarah Leach’s role involves visiting AGMs and offering support to clubs with planning the coming year’s activities. New club and district officers may feel a little daunted at the challenges that lie ahead, which is exactly what the field development team can help with. Yes, taking up a position within YFC can seem like one heck of a challenge, but we can help you take it in your stride – and actually have fun!

Even if everything runs smoothly, members tasked with running clubs and districts often need information, advice and guidance on how to get things done.


We offer support in lots of different ways, and can help all officers get the best out of their time in young farmers.

The Field Team will enable you to:

  • Work as a team
  • Plan a varied program of events
  • Run effective meetings
  • Understand YFC policies
  • Keep young members safe
  • Look after YFC money
  • Practice for competitions such as public speaking and stock judging
  • Find out more about YFC
  • Most importantly – have fun

We do not forget senior members and club leaders:

  • Officer training
  • Club leader training
  • Safeguarding matters
