Trevor Wilson's name has been imprinted on many trophies over the years culminating in a string of Ulster Young Farmer of the Year titles in special categories such as countryside management.

But within his own county of Fermanagh, he has won the County's Young Farmer of the Year title again this year and he has several years left for competitions in the YFCU. His success has come through membership of Lisbellaw YFC which this year was re-named as top club in Fermanagh.

Trevor is a past Chairman of Fermanagh YFC County Committee and is now climbing the ranks of the organisation, having been elected as one of the vice-Presidents hoping to become President one day. However the role demands a huge commitment and Trevor could be travelling to Loughry or further afield during any evening attending the YFCU Presidenital team meetings or visiting clubs.

For the time being, however, Trevor has to get on with his day job, working at Billy and Hazel Dunn's milking goat farm at Brookeborough as well as looking after his own sheep flock and cattle on the family near near Lisnaskea.

Trevor completed a three-year National Diploma course at Greenmount, of which one year was on placement on a farm at Markethill.
