Emerging Youth up for the challenge

The Victorian Final of the Australian Young Farmers Challenge is being held at Farm World 2022, on 25 March and you can be there to watch and cheer on our young farmers.  

Proudly presented by Melbourne Royal’s Emerging Leaders at Lardner Park, the Victorian Final of The Australian Young Farmers Challenge will have participants from different parts of regional Victoria, each with four members that must include both young men and young women. 

The teams compete in a series of typical agricultural events, including anything from animal handling to fencing, operating tractors and machinery, firefighting, first aid, heavy lifting, and transport challenges. 

The winning team will represent Victoria at the National Final, at the Sydney Royal Easter Show in April 2022. 

You are encouraged to come and support our young farmers at Lardner Park on March 25th. Tickets are available for purchase at https://lardnerpark.com.au/event/farm-world/2022-03-24/.
