Young Members and Education

Students and Young Handlers

As a Society we are passionate about young people, and if you are a student, member of YFC or just someone who is interested in cattle we are here to help you.

Our investment in the next generation of farmers takes many forms and is constantly evolving under the direction of our Youth Committee, set up in 2017 by the society with the sole purpose of encouraging and facilitating the participation of young people with Red Poll cattle.

This year we have an exciting programme of events designed to give opportunities to participate in showing and competing.

And please do not worry if you have no experience of handling cattle or do not know anyone,   WE ARE HERE TO HELP!!!!!!!!

Each year we set aside financial help for colleges who enter cattle and take students to some of the country's top agricultural shows.

Last year Easton and Otley & Easton, Shuttleworth, Writtle, Caple Manor all showed cattle and many of their students came along and excelled with their showing skills................ and had a great time as well!!

It really was a sight to feel proud of to see showing rings full of students (many who had never showed an animal before) enjoying and excelling themselves with Red Poll cattle.

This years' Diary of events;


This is not an exhausted list of events and more will be added.

If you have an event that you would like to add LET US KNOW!!

If you would like any help at any event or would like some help in learning about showing cattle please contact
