Organisers of New Zealand National Agricultural Fieldays are pleased to announce the finalists who will compete for the prestigious title of Fieldays Rural Bachelor of the Year 2014.

The competition takes place at Fieldays, 11-14 June, however the action kicks off on Monday 9 June when the bachelor finalists set off on an ‘Amazing Race’ to Fieldays from a mystery location, completing several rural activities and tasks en-route.

“I’m sure we will see a great contest as they compete and showcase their skills, strength and character, as they try and prove they have what it takes to win the title of Fieldays 2014 Rural Bachelor of the Year,” adds Mrs Annison.
