The 2018 FMG New Zealand Young Farmer Regional Contest for the Waikato/Bay of Plenty was in full swing on March 10th, as one of the sevens regions where the competitions are held.
The regional finalist went to 29-year-old contract milker Josh Cozens.
The Rural Exchange team spoke to Mr Cozins about his win and to learn a little more about him.
“She was fairly close the whole way through,” he told RadioLIVE.
The Young Farmer Contest intends to build key skills for the next generation of young farmers, and to help young farmers with networking and building relationships.
All regional winners will progress to the National Final in July.
