Young Farmer Contest #3

I wanted to keep you all up to date with the Young Farmer Contest but I’m being charged 68c at minute for broadband. So if you like internet, don’t stay at the Mercure when you come to Dunedin.

I shall write on word and copy and paste….

here it comes….


The winning AgriKids team from Tokanui, Southland


Otago/Southland competitor Pete Gardyne in the first aid section (very realistic and officially my Photo of the Day!)


Katherine from Northland in the forestry module – you would think the media thought women didn’t farm by the way they’re hanging around poor Katherine. She’s getting the contest some awesome publicity and she certainly held her own with the boys today!

and here they all are after one of the head to head challenges. What a good group of Young Farmers!

here’s the new Contest compere – welcome Craig Wiggins!

and the first home in today’s Agrisport – Tony Dowman from the East Coast (actually won on points by Tasman’s Michael Lilley – I think – it’s been a long day!)


And here’s the winner of the speeches the otber night…. Pete Gardyne from Otago/Southland

Jake Vargo from Vodafone and Colin Slade the rugby player ( 🙂 ) at the Vodafone Speeches Dinner giving away phones (in spectacular style). In case you were wondering, it was dress up – theme The Great Outdoors (oh and the guy with the mike told a joke and won some tickets… can’t remember the joke though….)
