GOLDEN BOOT

Matamata Chronicle - - Your Paper, Your Place -

It ap­pears there may be a lack of com­pet­i­tive men in the Waikato. It’s been three years since Mor­rinsville man Jeff Peek lifted the Golden Gum­boot in the Ru­ral Bach­e­lor of the Year com­pe­ti­tion in 2014 and organisers fear the drought is set to con­tinue. To date lo­cal fel­las have shied away from the com­pe­ti­tion, part­nered by Farm­lands, and there are real fears the tro­phy may be head­ing south with 75 per cent of ap­pli­cants so far from the South Is­land. New Zealand Agri­cul­tural Fiel­d­ays has called for el­i­gi­ble farm­ers to put their skills and charisma to the test at Mys­tery Creek from June 14 to 17, 2017.
