Young farmer breaks her arm during arm wresting event


It appears our ag industry members across the pond take their young farmer competitions seriously. Over the weekend,  a 20-year-old woman broke her arm during an arm wrestling competition at the Young Farmers’ Club’s northern district field day in Irthington, Cumbria. When her opponent realized she had broke her arm, she fainted.

There are 619 Young Farmers’ Clubs in England and Wales dedicated to supporting young people in agriculture and the countryside. Led by young people, for young people, the National Federation of Young Farmers’ Clubs provide their 23,500 members aged 10 to 26 with a unique opportunity to develop skills, work with their local communities, travel abroad … and take part in various competitions and challenges.

Contests range from traditional agricultural challenges such as cattle judging, sheep shearing, and fence erecting to competitions less ag related such as disco dancing, dodgeball, and of course arm wrestling.
