Farm man­ager fi­nal­ist named

Matamata Chronicle - - Rural Delivery -

Af­ter a pre­lim­i­nary round of judg­ing, fi­nal­ists in the 2011 Waikato Dairy In­dus­try Awards in­cor­po­rat­ing the Sharemilker/ Equity Farmer of the Year, Farm Man­ager of the Year and Dairy Trainee of the Year con­tests have been an­nounced.

Mata­mata farmer Andrew Bouton has been named as a farm man­ager fi­nal­ist.

Re­gional con­venor Brooke Lit­tin said judges’ feed­back had been very pos­i­tive.

‘‘Judges say we’ve got a very high cal­i­bre of en­trants, mak­ing it a chal­leng­ing job se­lect­ing those to go through to a fi­nal round of judg­ing. This will make for an ex­cit­ing evening when the win­ners are an­nounced in March.’’

Win­ners will be an­nounced at the Waikato Dairy In­dus­try Awards din­ner on March 11 at Bledis­loe Hall, Mys­tery Creek. Tick­ets are $80 and can be pur­chased from Brooke Lit­tin 07 883 6040 or Rachel Baker 07 871 9374.
