Southerners were among the winners at the New Zealand Ploughing Championship in Marlborough earlier this month.

The two-day event featured more than 30 competitors contesting five classes, from conventional tractor ploughing to horse ploughing.

The southerners to achieve overall placings were:

  • Murray Grainger, of Mosgiel, second in the vintage class.
  • Mark Dillon, of Riversdale, third in the conventional class.
  • Murray Baird, of Balfour, third in the reversible class.
  • Graham Anderson, of Thornby, fifth in the vintage class.

The 67th edition of the competition will be held in Clinton next year.
