Youth Development Programme

Are you aged between 8 and 24 and would like to know how the top stockmen produce major show champions or how they clip to get the best winter coats on the Stirling sale bulls?

Maybe you’re just interested in preparing your cattle better for local shows or markets, or just need a hand in getting started. Either way, the Aberdeen-Angus Youth Development Programme is the perfect platform for you to learn about and experience the cattle breeding industry first-hand from our team of experts.

Our workshops offer a chance to learn core skills from some of the top stockmen and women in the business. Not only is it educational, but the workshops also provide a great opportunity to mix with like-minded people. You don’t have to be an Aberdeen-Angus breeder, you just have to be ready for the challenge.

Sign up today and start furthering your Aberdeen-Angus future. Access the registration form here.
