For 50 years the New Zealand Young Farmer of the Year awards have tested the mettle of New Zealand men and women as they go to head to head in a challenging competition that tests a range of farming and agribusiness skills. This warm-hearted book tells that history, beginning with the first regional final in 1969, broadcast live from a hall at Lincoln College, and with a bemused sheep on the stage. These days 300 contestants sign up each year to demonstrate their skills at everything from fencing to accounting. This book tells the story of a unique event that draws on the traditions of heartland New Zealand.
