New Members Spotlight! Danny Potter, Bathgate JAC


What is your story away from YF?

Hello, I’m Danny Potter. I am 16 years old and I grew up in Harthill. I am currently in my 5th year of high school after which I hope to go on to a career in Engineering. At the weekend I work on a local farm looking after a few donkeys. I am an active member within Bathgate JAC and within my spare time, I enjoy attending club events and trying new things.


Why did you join?

I joined Bathgate JAC in the summer of 2022. I had been thinking about joining Young Farmers for a while, and after attending the Highland Show and chatting to some SAYFC members, I decided to join!


What have you got out of YF?

I have gotten a lot out of Young Farmers, I have made some great friends through the large variety of events on offer such as competitions and dances. I have learned some great skills through taking part in various club, regional and national competitions and have even won some prizes along the way. I have competed in a variety of events like national lamb dressing, East rally, club mock auctions and several other competitions, these have all been a large confidence booster for myself.


What do you want to get out of YF in the future?

In the future in Young Farmers I hope to continue competing in club, regional and national competitions. I hope to continue to make great friends and meet new people, as well as make my way through the ranks on the club committee.
