Photos from the Young Farmer Contest

One of the amazing things this week has been looking back on everything those seven Young Farmers had to do last week.

First of all, my congratulations to Michael, Pete and Brad – the top three, as well as Katherine, Andrew, Tony and Sam.  Awesome job.

Someone said to me this morning if Katherine had done well for a girl. Crikey mate. She did well for a bloke. She was there to do her best and give it her all – and that she did. I was jumping between all the events on Technical Day and all the practical challenges on Friday and I never saw her give up. Grimace – yes. Big sigh, smile and back to the grindstone – yes. Give up? No.

She looked nervous enough to throw up down the lens of the camera on Saturday night, but the blokes probably were too!

So here are some photos…  and then a link to some more.

Some Lincoln University and some Ravensdown… pre dinner drinks
