Central and North Burnett Times - - YOUR SAY -

IT’S a new ac­tiv­ity brought to the Mun­dub­bera Show and will be held on Satur­day, May 13 at 5pm. The Young Farm­ers Chal­lenge show­cases the skills, equip­ment and tech­niques farm­ers use ev­ery­day through a set of prac­ti­cal field ac­tiv­i­ties.

The Young Farm­ers Chal­lenge is de­signed to pro­mote ex­cel­lence in farm­ing and is a great ad­di­tion to the show. Its aim is to pro­mote cor­rect farm­ing tech­niques, give ex­po­sure to new tech­nolo­gies, pro­mote safety at work, show­case farm­ers as en­er­getic, hard-work­ing and multi-skilled.

Young Farm­ers Chal­lenge co­or­di­na­tor Paige Leifels said it was an event not to miss.

“We were in­spired by the Ekka and are hop­ing it will at­tract more peo­ple to the show, it’s a se­ries of seven chal­lenges,” Mrs Leifels said.

“The ac­tiv­ity in­volves strength and com­mon knowl­edge and we’re hop­ing to get around 10 teams in­volved.”

The Young Farm­ers Chal­lenge kicks off at 5pm on Satur­day, May 13.
