A sell-out crowd of 1200 is expected at ILT Stadium Southland for the main quiz and awards night in July. The first of the main events kick off on July 5th.

Grand finalists will tackle a technical day, while NZ Young Farmers members explore Southland on a mystery bus trip.

The rich history of the prestigious contest will be celebrated at a special 50th anniversary dinner that night. The event’s being held at ILT Stadium Southland and expecting 600 people. Memorabilia from past winners is being sought to display at the event.

The seven grand finalists will complete a gruelling day of fast-paced modules testing their skills on July 6th. Their ability to cope will determine if they still have a shot at the title.

The New Holland National Awards Dinner that night will be an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of NZ Young Farmers members. It will have a true blue tartan theme.

The week will culminate with the crowning of the 50th FMG Young Farmer of the Year on Saturday night.
