Time almost up in hunt for top rural consultants

Time is running out for rural professionals to enter the inaugural Farmax Consultant of the Year Awards.

Award nominations close on November 1.

Top North and South Island rural consultants who use Farmax pastoral farm support software will be named in the awards, boasting an approximate $5000 prize pool.

The award includes funds for further education in pasture-based production and paid hours to conduct a research project of the top consultant's choice.

About one-third of New Zealand's rural professionals are Farmax consultants and each is eligible to apply.

Finalists will be announced at the conference in Rotorua on November 18 and 19 and Christchurch on November 21 and 22.
