The FMG Young Farmer of the Year is New Zealand’s Ultimate Rural Challenge inspiring excellence, showcasing innovation and growing human capabilities.

The FMG Young Farmer of the Year sets a benchmark of excellence for young people in the agricultural industry to achieve and aspire to. It is also an opportunity for agriculture to celebrate and reward its achievers and to showcase the industry to the wider community.

The Contest portrays New Zealand agriculture as a professional, credible industry that provides a wealth of career opportunities and remains the cornerstone of the nation’s economy.

Alongside the Young Farmer of the year are competitions for TeenAg members and AgriKids. These competitions are designed to mimic the FMG Young Farmer of the Year contest but adapted for the age and skill levels of the kids involved, kick-starting interest in the primary industry from a young age. This competition shows the top three AgriKids groups from each region as they compete throughout the day against their peers.

This year for the first time ever will be the Trans-Tasman Challenge, where 2016 FMG Young Farmer of the Year Athol New will battle it out against Tasmanian Young Farmer of the Year Marty McConnon.

Bring along the family for a fun day out, with lots of action and fun filled activities for the kids. There will be coffee for the parents and plenty of food.
