2018 FMG Young Farmer of the Year Contest Chairman and past competitor Dean Rabbidge joined Rural Exchange to celebrate.
Mr Rabbidge said that many Kiwis have fond memories of watching Agri-contests on TV, but in recent years the contest "hasn't been trendy enough".
But Rural Exchange is changing that this year, with RadioLIVE's own Sarah Perriam getting the shoulder tap for broadcast hosting duties.
