Snowdonia's young farmers to be led by father-and-son team for the first time
A father-and-son team created history when becoming the first family pairing to head up the Eryri young farmers federation.
Glyn Owen was elected president while son Merfyn was confirmed as chairman at the federation’s AGM in the Sportmans Hotel, Porthmadog.
The Llangybi YFC members will lead the county for the next 12 months.
“It was history in the making!” said outgoing president Tudur Parry.
“For me, it’s been a great privilege to be a president and I wish them the best to the future.”
