Millers Flat will be the site of next month's Otago district
finals of the ANZ Young Farmer Contest.
Teviot Valley Young Farmers Club chairman Sam Sturgess, of
Teviot Valley, said they would host the district final at the
Millers Flat sportsgrounds and at the Millers Flat and
Ettrick Volunteer Fire Brigade's premises on November 23.
''Preparations are going well,'' Mr Sturgess said.
He said 15 modules were planned for the day's practical
session, while preparation for the questions and answers
session during the more formal function during the evening
was under way.
''The only problem is we won't know until five days
beforehand how many competitors we are going to get.
''We have talked to James Lawn, the chairman of the Clinton
club, who is helping us out, and he said they aim for 15 when
they run theirs.''
• The Eastern and Southern district finals will be held in
Thornbury on November 30 and at the Wyndham A&P Show on
December 7, respectively.
• North Otago's district final will be in Oamaru during the
Victorian Heritage Celebration on November 16.
• The regional final for Otago/Southland will be held next
year on February 22, in Alexandra.
