Young Farmer Challenges

The Young Farmer Challenge is the ultimate test of skill and ability, with young farmers showcasing their expertise in a series of on-farm challenges. This can be anything from animal handling to fencing, driving tractors, putting out fires, first aid, heavy lifting and transport challenges
The competition is open to teams of four young people (18 - 30yrs) involved in farming or other areas of the agricultural industry. Teams must be made up of both male and female competitors.
The Young Farmer Challenge is designed to promote excellence in farming and showcase the involvement of youth in agriculture through a display of the skills, equipment and techniques farmers use every day. Emphasis is placed on completing each challenge within the fastest time, but more importantly, with the correct technique and safe work method.
Currently there are three challenges in Victoria
  • Sungold Field Days in Warrnambool - February 2016.
  • The Royal Melbourne Show - September 2016 (see details below)            
  • Geelong Royal Show in October 2016
