CRV Ambreed is sponsoring the New Zealand Young Farmers Stock Judging Competition for the third year running.
The aim of the competition is to develop an interest in skills around stock assessment in members of NZ Young Farmers and its TeenAg section. At club and district level competitions the emphasis is on learning the basics from the likes of A&P show society judges.
CRV Ambreed managing director Angus Haslett says the company sponsors the NZ Young Farmer Stock Judging Competition because CRV Ambreed and the contest were about recognising the best stock. “We believe in supporting our farmers in their unwavering focus on their number one asset, their herds, and in helping them farm smarter. We’re pleased we can play a part in bringing through the next generation of great farmers.”
NZ Young Farmers chief executive Terry Copeland says CRV Ambreed is long-standing supporter of NZ Young Farmers.
“Their sponsorship of our National Stock Judging Competition enables a new generation of young farmers to learn about livestock conformation and has a real benefit on farm. We find them to be excellent to communicate with and we greatly appreciate our partnership with this iconic agricultural company.”
The CRV Ambreed Stock Judging Competition is being held at NZ Young Farmers Clubs across the country, culminating in a national final held in conjunction with the FMG Young Farmer of the Year Grand Final.
The Tasman district’s CRV Ambreed Stock Judging Competition was held on September 18, and the Waikato and Bay of Plenty region’s CRV Ambreed Stock Judging Competition is next up on October 29 at the Waikato A&P Show at Claudelands Arena, Heaphy Terrace, Hamilton.
Further regional CRV Ambreed Stock Judging Competitions are planned for the East Coast, Taraman and Otago/Southland regions.
