Since 1969, the Contest has brought together competitors, industry members, and dedicated volunteers to celebrate the future of the industry.


Every year, B+LNZ supports the primary school students through the AgriKids competition by developing and running a module based on a topic from the sheep and beef sector. The AgriKids competition runs alongside FMG Young Farmer of the Year and FMG Junior Young Farmer of the Year.
