Oathall Young Farmers put out their youngest ever team for the annual Sussex County YFC Competitions Day held at Plumpton College on Sunday 4 March 2012.
The youngsters, many of whom had never competed before and who were aged 11-16, came away with a host of prize cards and 10 individual cups or trophies.
Competitions included stock judging, animal husbandry, countryside knowledge, tractor driving, pottery, cycle safety, flower arranging and egg painting. Other more light hearted classes involved eating doughnuts or chocolate washed down with lemonade all against the clock.
The students are grateful for the support they receive from local farmers and would like to thank Anthony Hole and sons from Burgess Hill who provided expert cycle safety training.
Club leader and teacher Howard Wood commented: “I never fail to be amazed by the talents, enthusiasm and hard work displayed by the young people of today, they earn all their successes.”
