This year AGrowQuip sponsored the Young Grower of the Year, an annual competition to find the best young fruit or vegetable grower in the country.

Stephen van der Gulik and Dale Holmes attended the regional competition day in Pukekohe as judges of one of the practical modules. For this module the competitors had to load a trailer using a 5 series tractor, once the trailer was loaded they had to secure the load and jump into a 6 series tractor, driving in between cones and finishing off by backing the trailer into a marked park.

All of the competitors were pushed out of their comfort zones but each one performed extremley well. We were proud to see them give it there all.
All in all it was a fantastic event to be a part of and we hope to be involved again next year.
