Sharemilkers Encouraged To Enter Competition

Sharemilkers Encouraged To Enter Prestigious Competition

The Sharemilker of the Year Organising Committee Chairman, Greg Maughan, today reminded sharemilkers that entries are now open for this year's competition and urged sharemilkers to enter the prestigious contest.

"The New Zealand Sharemilker of the Year competition celebrates excellence in sharemilking. Hundreds of sharemilkers from all over New Zealand enter this exciting competition every year."

"Nine regions will be running competitions this year. The winners of these regional competitions will go on to compete for the National Sharemilker of the year title, and a valuable prize pool," said Mr Maughan.

"The reason most sharemilkers enter the competition is so that they can benchmark their performance against other sharemilkers."

"The competition's strength lies in the voluntary work undertaken by the regional committees organising the regional competitions. It is all about sharemilkers helping sharemilkers," Mr Maughan said.

"There would be no competition if it wasn't for the generous support of a core group of national sponsors. Livestock Improvement Corporation, EcoLab, Bank of New Zealand, Telecom, and the Consulting Officer Service have all pledged their support. We are also pleased to announce that Ravensdown Fertiliser Co-operative has just recently come on board as a national sponsor. Numerous other sponsors support the competition at a regional level. Their support is also invaluable."

"Many people have worked hard to make this year's competition work. Sharemilkers should show their support for sharemilking through entering."

Entries close on 15 January 2001. Entry forms are available from Federated Farmers by telephoning 0800 FARMING (327 646).
