and the winner is….

Tonight Pleasant Point’s Tim O’Sullivan earnt the right to call himself the 2009 Young Farmer of the Year.

Actually, over the past few days, half a dozen young farmers have earnt the right to be very proud of themselves – but only one gets to take home the trophy and $90,000 worth of prizes!

Second placegetter Richard Copland from Gore would be very proud of himself for runner-up (and so he should be) but wouldn’t you always wonder where you could have picked up just four more points.

Tim is a humble man of few words. A rugby-playing, farming good old kiwi bloke. A Colin Meads. Yep.

And a bloody good bloke too. Good on ya mate.

We’re just home from the ball. The carriage is once again a pumpkin.

The skinny 18-somethings in their fabulous new frocks are all still dancing, with RTD in hand, to a band playing a mix of songs from “Your sex is on fire” to Cold Chisel. Gotta love it even though anyone out of Young Farmers age feels absolutely ancient (or is it just us?!)

and what’s with the mullets? Not only were three of the six AgriKids finalists on the stage tonight sporting very 80s-like mullets – so were many of the 20-somethings on the dance floor later.

No way.
