Get awards en­tries in early

South Waikato News - - RURAL DELIVERY -

Peo­ple who en­ter the New Zealand Dairy In­dus­try Awards early, be­fore De­cem­ber 1, will go in the draw to win one of three farm bikes worth about $4000 each.

Or­gan­iser Chris Keep­ing said one bike win­ner would be drawn from early en­trants in each of the con­test’s three cat­e­gories – sharemilker/eq­uity farmer, farm man­ager and dairy trainee.

More than 80 peo­ple had en­tered in the first week since en­tries opened, but or­gan­is­ers wanted more.

The fi­nal date for en­tries is De­cem­ber 20. The awards at­tract farm­ers from through­out New Zealand.

The awards were de­signed to ‘‘show­case and sup­port passionate farm­ers of the fu­ture’’.

Re­gional com­pe­ti­tions would be held early next year, fol­lowed by a na­tional fi­nal in Welling­ton in May.
