National Bank Young Farmer Regional Final
The National Bank Young Farmer Regional Final was held in Te Awamutu on the 8th May with a free public practical day in Selwyn Park. The evening part of the contest was held at the Trust Waikato te Awamutu Events centre at 7.30pm.
The contest was won by last year's Grand Finalist runner-up Louise Collingwood. Louise is only the second female to make the Grand Finals, and she has high hopes of taking out the top prize this year. The Grand Final will be televised on TV One, July 10th.
Earlier in the day, the crew from TV2's What Now programme was on hand filming the Agrikids section of the contest. Agrikids consists of 7 teams of 3 children from our local schools competing in a junior Young farmer contest.
The What Now crew also helped stage a Mothers Day breakfast at Anzac Green. Lucky mums were pampered by Team 7 staff and served breakfast from Robert Harris.
Highlights from the day appeared on What Now, Sunday 9th May.
