Applications are invited for the 2024/25 year provided they are received by 1st June 2024.

Over the years money has been made available to assist with funding a wide variety of students as they make their way to the farming and agricultural sectors.

The Society has contributed towards agricultural courses, livestock photography, woodland management and forestry courses, and a rural leadership course to name just a few.  All applications are considered by the Charity Committee and wherever possible we ask our grantees to come and tell us about their projects or courses and to help steward at the various shows held at the Showground. Applications must be received by 1st June for consideration in July or 1st November for consideration in November, by the Charity Committee in any year.

Conferences play a big part in the Society’s life.  The Dairy Show attracts prominent speakers from within the dairy industry who share a platform to inform and debate the current important topics.

Throughout the year, both day or evening seminars are arranged and have featured subjects ranging from Fuel, Feed and Fertiliser to Managing your Business within Commodity Markets.  Sheep grading days, planning advisory days, information on NVZs, Blue Tongue and advice on Single Farm Payments along with any other issues of the day are also covered.
