About the FMG Young Farmer of the Year contest:
FMG Young Farmer of the Year is the flagship event for New Zealand Young Farmers and is held in high esteem among the rural community, being one of the top agricultural contests for those under 31. Every year up to 300 contestants battle it out to be named FMG Young Farmer of the Year.
