Two HYB members are currently in Toronto for the Royal Winter Fair. Andrew Patton and Andrew Patterson were the joint winners of the 2016 President's Medal and as part of their prize they have received the opportunity to visit this fantastic event.
The first couple of days in Toronto have seen Andrew and Andrew visit a variety of farms with a focus on management techniques. They have so far visited Summitholm Farm (pictured), Greenacre Ltd, Larenwood Farm and Wardway Farm which has proved to be an excellent insight into the Canadian dairy industry. They have also managed to squeeze in a trip to Niagra Falls where they were caught looking fantastic whilst trying to stay dry!
The trip has been kindly funded by Semex UK who are proud sponsors of HYB and strive to support the development of young people within the dairy industry.
