NEXT Mon­day (Oc­to­ber 1) is the clos­ing date for en­tries in this year’s Zurich Farm In­surance/ Farm­ing In­de­pen­dent Farmer of the Year awards which have an over­all prize fund of €16,000.

There are five cat­e­gories to en­ter; sheep, tillage, dairy, beef and ris­ing star; there will also be panel se­lec­tions for farm safety, life­time achieve­ment and the over­all Farmer of the Year 2018 award. Farm­ers can nom­i­nate them­selves OR be nom­i­nated by any third party (Tea­gasc Ad­vi­sor, friend, fam­ily mem­ber or fel­low farmer).

The awards are now in their fifth year and will take place in The Hod­son Bay Ho­tel, Athlone on Novem­ber 1. A lim­ited num­ber of ta­bles are still avail­able for the event which has drawn strong sup­port from the farm ma­chin­ery, prop­erty, agri food and farm man­age­ment sec­tors. Ta­bles can be booked at www.farmeroftheyear.ie or phone (01) 284 6096.
